A somewhat rare "unbusted" 1967 Gibson SG Special — owned by the Who's Pete Townshend during the time of the band's auto-destruction antics — was sold for £37,500 (approximately $62,978) at Bonhams Knightsbridge Entertainment Memorabilia sale on June 24.

"It must be one of the few passing through my hands which has survived without getting smashed," said Townshend about the cherry-red SG.
