Texas’ Burley Auction Gallery has announced that it will play host to the Ted Nugent Guns, Guitars And Hot Rod Cars auction, selling – as the auction’s name implies – guitars, guns and cars owned by the rocker.
The guitar side of the auction will feature a wide range of vintage, prototype and one-of-a-kind guitars. Vintage instruments range from rare 1958 and 1959 Gibson Les Pauls, 1956 Fender Strat, Black Gibson Byrdland, Gibson Custom Shop Les Pauls, to prototype PRS models and more. There’s also amplifiers, cabinets and stage equipment such as pyrotechnic guns and stage décor.
Ted Nugent said of the auction: “Uncle Ted has powerlived the ultimate American Dream of life, liberty, pursuit of ultra happiness and an accumulation of the coolest stuff available to mankind. But alas, like the greatest philosopher of all time stated, ‘A good man has to know his limitations!’
“So, as I throttle into my 73rd firebreathing clean and sober year, it is nigh time to streamline, and lucky, lucky you, I am auctioning off some of my extremely unique one-of-a-kind Nuge goodies for ya all to display, use and absorb the NugeGonzoMOJO that each and every item reeks of.
“I found a guy that I trust to fondle and auction off a lifetime of accumulation of the greatest energised stuff that a guy could ever hope for – Robb Burley. Burley Auction Gallery has handled some of the biggest estates and some of the most valuable family heirlooms in the history of auctions, so I appreciate his integrity and his professionalism.”
Alongside the guitars, the auction will feature over 200 personal firearms, including custom Ted Nugent guns, personal carry guns, presentation guns, Ted Nugent ammo, archery equipment, memorabilia and more. There’s also a fully restored 1968 Ford Bronco and a custom 2015 Dodge Hellcat Challenger.
The auction is set to take place 27 March this year. You can find out more at burleyauction.com.
