One of Bob Marley’s guitars was ranked as the fifth most expensive guitar in the world. The Reggae Superstar’s Washburn 22- Series Hawk guitar was ranked as one of the most expensive guitars recently.

The guitar, which was owned by Marley, is one of seven and it is now valued at US$1.2 million. The Jamaican Government classified it as a national asset after the Bob’s death in 1981.


Scholars have said, the 22 fret double-cutaway Washburn guitar was a favorite for the superstar.

Bob also owned a Yamaha SG1000 and a, 1070s Fender Stratocaster. He was seen using both guitars during the Wailers’ last tour in 1979.

The rankings were posted by Wealthy Gorilla the self-improvement website. Coming in at number one was the singer Bryan Adams’ Fender Stratocaster, and it was sold for US$2.7 million at an auction in 2015.
