A historic 1963 Martin that Bob Dylan played for over a decade—including his full set at George Harrison’s legendary Concert for Bangladesh in 1971—is going on sale.

The auction for the guitar is being held by Heritage Auctions, and will take place on November 11 in Dallas. Only the second known Dylan guitar to ever go to auction, it is expected to fetch at least $300,000.

Dylan sold the guitar to his longtime guitar repairman, Larry Cragg, in 1977. Cragg has kept the guitar in a humidity-controlled environment, with loosened strings, ever since.

Full details about the guitar can be requested by contacting Mike Gutierrez at 602-579-5565 or mikeg@ha.com.

You can see the lot for yourself right here, and watch a video of Dylan playing the guitar in question below.
