Gibson John Lennon 70th Anniversary J-160E Guitars

To celebrate Lennon's 70th birthday, Gibson and Yoko Ono collaborated on re-creations of one of the iconic instruments most associated with the Beatles legend: his J-160E acoustic-electric guitar. The guitars trace Lennon's career, starting with the original vintage sunburst finish identified so strongly with the Beatles' early work, through to the stripped-down version he played with Ono at their famous bed-ins. The J-160E Museum — a limited edition of which only 70 have been made — features the exact details of this guitar down to renderings of the caricatures Lennon made of himself and his wife. (From $3,599 to $10,999; guitarcenter.com). For the budget-minded, Gibson's second line, Epiphone, has the EJ-160E ($599; guitarcenter.com)
