Lou Reed Played & Signed Gibson Melody Maker Guitar.

Lou Reed has signed this Melody Maker Guitar in a gold sharpie.

Per the consignor, the story of how the guitar was signed is as follows: “Lou was not at all like I expected him to be. He was serious, but friendly, and extremely low-key. I could tell how intelligent he was. Not how you would expect the man who wrote “Take a Walk on the Wild Side” to act. Lou was bored and had some time to kill on his day off. He asked if I would show him around. I took him to a restaurant/bar owned by a friend of mine. He was more than happy to sign autographs for anyone who asked. He thought the guitar that I asked him to sign was a “cool old vintage piece” so he tuned and played the guitar a bit before he signed it.”

Provenance: From the collection of a former Music Executive. Lots 76 to 100 and Lots 499 to 803 in this auction are consigned by one vendor, who worked with and met various artists from 1985-1992. All the items were personally obtained by the vendor. This is the best in-person collection we have ever handled as an auction company.

Good condition.
