Discarded Beatles Guitar Found In Eastern Europe
A guitar thrown by Sir Paul McCartney into the crowd during a Beatles concert in Britain decades ago has turned up at a school in Montenegro, Serbia.
MCCartney is said to have tossed the Hofner Violin bass guitar into the audience after its neck broke. The instrument was caught by fan DARIO PERSI, who later gave the guitar to his cousin, cameraman MILAN DOBRILOVIC.
Kind-hearted Dobrilovic recently donated it to a music school in Herceg Novi, a tiny town on Montenegro's Adriatic coast.
The violin-shaped guitar was made famous by MCCartney, who adopted it in 1961 and still uses the same model.
