Elvis Presley Owned and Stage Played 1942 Martin D-18 Sun Sessions Guitar

Elvis Presley’s historic 1942 Martin D-18 guitar, Serial Number 80221, which he owned between 1954 and 1956, is often referred to as his “Sun Sessions” guitar. Elvis used this actual guitar extensively while recording at the iconic Sun Studios in Memphis, TN and while performing on stage during this period. He can be seen playing the guitar in many, many photographs from this time, two of which are featured here. Elvis purchased the guitar at O.K. Houck’s Piano Store in Memphis, trading in his Martin 000-18. He decorated the body of the guitar with adhesive metal letters spelling out his name, "ELVIS". The letters "ELVI" remain with the "S" missing. The extensive wear visible on the guitar due to Elvis’ hard strumming is testament to its considerable use by Elvis. During this period Elvis recorded some of his most classic songs, songs that catapulted him into his meteoric rise to fame, including “That’s All Right (Mama)”, “Blue Moon of Kentucky”, “Good Rockin’ Tonight” and many more.The guitar comes with extensive provenance and photographs of Elvis playing it.

Tupac Shakur Handwritten & Signed Letter to Madonna from Prison

On Tuesday June 4, 2019, the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court, in a unanimous 5-0 decision, ruled in favor of and against Madonna over the auction of her personal items including a breakup letter from rap legend Tupac Shakur. “We won at the trial court, and now a unanimous appeals court in Manhattan has sided for us said owners of Jeffrey Haas, attorney for, added, “My co-counsel Hartley Bernstein and I were fully prepared in the event Madonna appealed the soundly decided lower court decision, and it was gratifying to see that justice continued to be blind to Madonna’s celebrity and money and the alchemy of her high profile legal counsel.” Added co-counsel Hartley Bernstein, “Celebrity does not trump the facts. Here, those facts were plain as day. Ms. Lutz, the consignor, owns the items and is free to sell them on her behalf.”
