Lady Gaga's 1990 Red Rolls-Royce Corniche III automobile sold at auction for $125,000. But a guitar belonging to one of The Beatles sold for five times as much.
The Julien's Auctions sale of rock 'n' roll memorabilia was held last weekend at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York.
The Beatles George Harrison's 1962 Rickenbacker guitar was sold for $657,000.
Harrison had the guitar refinished from a Fireglo red to black to match John Lennon's Rickenbacker.
Harrison purchased the guitar in 1963 at Fenton's Music store in Mount Vernon, Illinois, while visiting his sister.
Critical thinking challenge: How can a guitar be worth more than a car?
