The first guitar that Sir Paul McCartney held and played is expected to fetch more than £100,000 when it is auctioned at Abbey Road Studios in London on 28 July.

Sir Paul learned his first chords on the Rex acoustic instrument, which was owned by his best friend, Ian James.

The instrument is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the former Beatle which says, “The above guitar is the first I ever held.”

James, also 64, is selling it to help fund his retirement, reports the Sun.
