'Let it Be' movie guitar auctioned for $434,750

A guitar played by the late George Harrison during the Beatles' last public performance was sold for $434,750 in a public auction.

Harrison played the custom-made Fender Rosewood Telecaster during the filming of the movie "Let It Be," said Bill Miller, president of Odyssey Auctions, the California auction house that conducted the sale Saturday. The Jan. 30, 1969, performance on the roof of London's Apple Records was the last time the band performed together in public, Miller said.

The winning bidder was an "anonymous West Coast collector," Miller said.
