    It is not his true guitar. It is Fred Guy´s guitar from the Duke Ellington Orchestra. It was used for the famous photo.
    Django used a Selmer built in 1940 (serial 503) - it is part of the instrument collection shown at Cite de la musique in Paris.
    I am sure this would go for far more money.


    All the best,
    Robin
