Extraordinary People is a channel on YouTube, where you can find videos of real-life documentaries, featuring the lives and stories of the most inspirational, awe-inspiring, and extraordinary people.
On April 29, 2020, the people who are behind this channel published an interesting 4-minutes video about Sir Ben Slade.
They were into Ben’s storage where they searched together and found the objects what seems to be valuable. And not just some of the paintings, their attention grabbed a guitar from Mark Knopfler himself!
They opened the case of the beautiful Fender Stratocaster signed by Mark Knopfler, and Sir Ben Slade started to explain how he actually bought this pearl of a guitar.
He said: “I went to one of these charities run by Elton John, and it was being televised and everybody had too much to drink and I was trying to buy something else and somebody said that was worth $8,000 and it was about two and a half thousand quid and so I was bidding and had a few drinks and unfortunately I ended up with it.”
“I can’t leave it lying around the house, although everybody would break it and it’s very valuable apparently, and it’s a Mark Knopfler’s guitar,” he added.
So after that, they went together to the Paul Fraser Collectibles in Bristol, United Kingdom, in hoping that the expert Kylie Whitehead will put a good price on this musical find. Watch the full video below, and find out what Kylie said for this guitar. Enjoy!
