George Harrison's Renowned “Here Comes the Sun” Washburn Acoustic Guitar Headed for...

Wednesday, June 05, 2024

Although gaining the title of “the quiet Beatle”, George Harrison used his words for songs as he helped write hits like “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, “Taxman”, and “Here Comes the Sun.” While landing a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his contributions to the Beatles, the musician also gained entry in 2004 for his solo career. Considered an icon in the music industry, Harrison’s Washburn acoustic guitar, which he used to play “Here Comes the Sun” is finding its way to auction after John Lennon’s guitar recently sold for nearly $3 million.

While Lennon’s guitar brought home a staggering amount of money, which set a record, Harrison’s guitar looks to go around $100,000. With the guitar for sale at, the auction will run until June 7. And given its historical significance to the Beatles, there is sure to be a bidding war to bring up such a memorable instrument held by an iconic musician.

Much like Harrison, actor Jeff Daniels knows the pressures that come with being in the spotlight as he starred in iconic films like Dumb and Dumber. And while both found careers in different spaces in entertainment, their paths crossed thanks to the film Checking Out. Recalling his interaction with Harrison, Daniels revealed in 1988, during the production of the film, the musician visited the set since it was produced by his production company, Handmade Films.
