Dylan's guitar from Newport to be auctioned in NYC

A young Bob Dylan played this Fender Stratocaster at the historic 1965 Newport Folk Festival. On Dec. 6, 2013, it could bring as much as half a million dollars when it comes up for auction at Christie's New York. The festival marked the first time Dylan went electric, drawing boos from folk-music purists.
