elvis-presleymartin-d-28If you combine Elvis Presley, Las Vegas and a Martin D-28, what do you get?  You get more than one heckuva weekend.  According to one bidder in a recent Los Angeles auction, you get a guitar that is worth over $100,000.

Today The Associated Press is reporting that a Martin D-28 guitar played by Elvis Presley in his last concert in Las Vegas just sold at auction for $106,200.  It fetched more than the sequined glove worn by Michael Jackson on the 1984 Victory Tour and more than the bullwhip swung by Harrison Ford in “India Jones and the Last Crusade” – as it should be.

    I would LOVE to have a guitar that Elvis played! He’s still the king imo and all of his bands were smoking. I mean who’s better than Scotty Moore and James Burton for that style. ROCK!!
