LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- A guitar used early in the Beatles' career by John Lennon sold for $2.41 million in an online auction.

The acoustic guitar, a Gibson J-160E, was lost for 40 years and sold for three times the expected price of $800,000 on Julien's Live auction block site Saturday. The buyer wished to remain anonymous. The sale was a record, even for a guitar considered part of music history.
