ANN ARBOR -- A signed guitar that the late Beatles member George Harrison donated to the Borders book chain has been sold following the company's liquidation.
Ex-employees tell AnnArbor.com that Harrison made the gift of the Fender Stratocaster about a decade ago in gratitude for Borders Group Inc.'s support of one of his reissued records. Harrison died in 2001.
The guitar was on display at Borders' Ann Arbor headquarters until the company's bankruptcy and closing.
The proceeds of the sale are being pooled and will go to Borders' creditors.
Jim Shaw of the liquidating company Gordon Brothers Group LLC confirmed Wednesday that the guitar was sold but isn't saying how much it brought.
AnnArbor.com says the guitar was listed on eBay Oct. 24 with a starting bid of $500.
