10. Classical guitar—Robert Bouchet

Sold for: $122,500

Robert Bouchet was a French guitar maker whose instruments can be heard on the early recordings of classical musician Julian Bream. He built only 150 guitars in his lifetime, making them highly desirable and very expensive.

This particular guitar was built in 1964 in Paris and was signed and dated by Bouchet on the inside of its body. Bouchet also put his Parisian street address, 169 Rue Ordener, beneath his signature. In October 2009, it sold for $122,500, a world auction record for his guitars.
