John Lennon's 'long lost' Gibson guitar up for sale

A guitar owned and used by John Lennon on many of The Beatles early recordings before being lost after a gig is going to be auctioned in the United States.

The Gibson J-160-E acoustic guitar has been declared genuine by Beatles' instruments expert Andy Babiuk, who compared it to photographs and film footage of Lennon playing it.

It will be auctioned in Beverley Hills in November.
