Lennon's Lost Guitar to Auction


OWNER OF JOHN LENNON’S LONG LOST 1962 GIBSON J-160E SPEAKS EXCLUSIVELY TO COLLECTIBLE GUITAR | THEN AND NOW MAGAZINE!




Most guitar players and collectors alike have dreamt of one day finding that rare one-of-a-kind vintage guitar at a pawn shop, yard sale or small-town music store. For John McCaw of San Diego, California, the dream actually happened in 1969. But he didn’t realize his good fortune until late last year!

For 46 years, McCaw played, cherished and cared for a truly magnificent 1962 Gibson J-160E with a Sunburst finish. The guitar always seemed special to him, but he never understood why. For most of those 46 years the guitar hung on a wall inside his home, surviving two adventurous sons, six rambunctious cousins, eight dogs, and scores of friends and family gatherings at “McCaw Central” in San Diego. No one ever

had any inclination whatsoever of the guitar’s history or provenance, and NEVER in his wildest dreams did McCaw ever imagine just how valuable – and special – this Gibson J-160E truly was.

It was only after a series of events during the fall of 2014 that McCaw finally realized the 1962 Gibson J-160E he’d owned since 1969 was actually John Lennon’s original long lost J-160E – the same guitar Lennon used to record and write many early Beatles’ hits, including “Please, Please, Me,” “From Me To You,” “Ask Me Why,” “She Loves You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “All My Loving,” and “This Boy.”

The guitar’s existence was announced to the world this past June by Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, who will offer the guitar during its Icons & Idols Rock N Roll auction on Nov. 6-7. The estimated price range is $600,000 to $800,000, though some experts believe it could fetch well over $1 million, which could make it the new record holder as the most expensive guitar ever sold at auction.

McCaw has been hounded for interviews ever since Julien’s press release hit the newswires. But other than one interview with a local San Diego television station, McCaw has remained silent.

Until now!



Collectible Guitar | Then and Now magazine is honored to offer McCaw’s first in-depth interview regarding this legendary guitar in its July/August issue, which is now available through the magazine’s web site at www.collectibleguitar.com. You can also buy the magazine at all Guitar Center retail store locations throughout the USA.

In this exclusive story, written by longtime journalist and owner of Nashville’s Blues Vintage Guitars, Inc. shop, Gabriel J. Hernandez, McCaw reveals the complete story behind the guitar and how he discovered it was Lennon’s long lost J-160E. Additionally, Hernandez’s in-depth investigative reporting reveals the true story behind the guitar’s mysterious disappearance, and its journey from Liverpool to San Diego.

“I read the initial press release and was blown away,” Hernandez said. “And after doing research it really upset me that people were being so negative about such a wonderful story. That’s when I decided the ‘real’ story needed to be flushed out.”

And what a story it is.

“I played that guitar for 45 years and then found out it was Lennon’s. And ever since the guitar has had this wonderful aura around it, especially to the true believers and fans of Lennon and The Beatles,” McCaw said. “This is a very special guitar, and I believe it wants to be played again.”

Others who have played it echo the same sentiments.

“I have been absolutely blown away by this guitar. It’s really freaked me out,” said Andy Babiuk, owner of Fab Gear in Rochester, New York, and author of the critically acclaimed book Beatles Gear-All The Fab Four’s Instruments From Stage To Studio. “All I can tell you is that I’ve played guitars owned and played by Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, and many, many others. But this one … this one sent a chill up my spine the second I touched it, and that in itself is pretty amazing,” Babi

Rhett Tangled Up



Nashville, TN - July 20, 2015 - As it smokes up the Top 15 at Country Radio, Thomas Rhett’s “Crash And Burn” earns GOLD certification by the RIAA. The new track serves as the lead single from his upcoming sophomore release TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.) out Sept. 25.

“It seriously blows my mind to think half a million people have already bought ‘Crash,’” said Thomas Rhett. “Being out on the road with our fans all summer and getting to see them react to this song live has been incredible, and it's making me even more excited to get new music in their hands."


Thomas Rhett also celebrates Multi-PLATINUM (2X) RIAA single certification for “It Goes Like This,” which helped tally three chart-topping hits off his debut album, making him as the first male country artist in over 20 years to do so.

This is the 3rd consecutive chart-topper from his PLATINUM certified album OLD BOOTS, NEW DIRT.

"Being able to look out into a stadium full of people and have them singing and swaying to this song has been a pretty cool thing the last two months," said Aldean.  "We've never really needed much of an excuse to throw down backstage or get a little bit rowdy, but I have a feeling the party might be bigger than usual this weekend in Pasadena."

Over the weekend, Aldean sold out Chicago’s Amphitheater before two nights at Target Field in Minneapolis, MN (7/18, 7/19), setting an impressive attendance record on Saturday with more than 44,000 fans. His show-stopping set showcased “live vocals that are better than ever” (Star Tribune) and his “confident swagger” (The Times), and will continue this weekend in Paso Robles, CA (7/24) and Pasadena, CA (7/25) where he will headline a historic first-ever country concert at the Rose Bowl.


The three-time and reigning ACM “Male Vocalist of the Year” has sold more than 10 million albums, with each release being certified PLATINUM or better. Aldean’s “most ambitious album to date” (Associated Press) OLD BOOTS NEW DIRT was the first country album released and certified PLATINUM in 2014.  Aldean is in the midst of his “most explosive tour ever” (Rolling Stone) as his headlining 2015 BURN IT DOWN TOUR continues to be hailed by critics as a “game-changing run” (Billboard). The "absolute juggernaut” (San Jose Mercury News) has “people turning out in droves to witness the live version of the man who has been supplying the soundtrack to their lives over the last decade” (Country Weekly).

Little Dolly and Big Dolly








NEW YORK, NY (July 13, 2015) – The singing superstar had a thrilling surprise for the young actress, Alyvia Lind, personally giving her the news that she will play Dolly as a child in the upcoming original movie “Coat of Many Colors.” “Coat of Many Colors,” named after Parton’s song, will be based on Parton’s upbringing, with the Parton serving as executive producer.

Parton had called the 1971 track her favorite song she has written. It tells the story of how her mother stitched together a coat for her daughter out of rags given to the family, telling her the biblical story of Joseph and his Coat of Many Colors. But when the girl, all excited, debuts the new coat at school, she is ridiculed by her classmates for wearing rags.

The original coat is now on display in Parton’s Chasing Rainbows Museum at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN.


NBC’s deal with Parton, includes a series of standalone TV movies based on Parton’s songs, stories and life. They will contain music but won’t be musicals, with Parton possibly appearing in some. Parton is developing the projects with production partner Sam Haskell of Magnolia Hill Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television.
