I found this story after browsing Google News USA.

“MACON, Ga. (AP) — Fans of Duane Allman in Macon, Georgia, say they didn't expect the late musician's old guitar to sell for $1.25 million at a recent auction.

The gold-topped guitar is the one Allman played in the hit song "Layla," where he performed with Eric Clapton, The Telegraph reported .
Until recently, the guitar affectionately called "Layla" had been on display at the Allman Brothers Band museum at The Big House in Macon.”

With that incredible opening, Duane Allman and his guitar set many a young soul on their teenage way and, at 15 years old, I would have been one of them.
