“This February, Julien’s is celebrating the power of music by the most iconic artists the world has ever known with front and center iconic items from the fiercest female rockers from Dolly Parton to Taylor Swift to Amy Winehouse and Madonna,” said Martin Nolan, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Julien’s Auctions. “We are also proud to announce that a selection of Gibson guitars signed by Lana Del Rey, Willie Nelson, Noel Gallagher and other artists will be a part of our fundraising efforts in our long-standing partnership with Gibson Gives whose proceeds will go toward their music education program with FirstBank Amphitheater.”

Making a grand entrance on the auction stage will be a selection of props from a famous photo shoot of the world’s biggest Music Icon: Taylor Swift. Swifties will instantly recognize these pieces that were used in the 12-time GRAMMY Award-winning pop culture phenomenon’s 2014 Glamour Magazine cover boho-inspired photo shoot where Swift sports a 70s-style fringe among a curated selection of vintage-style props, including: a 1991 Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite guitar, in translucent cerulean blue finish with weight relieved Mahogany and chromyte body, maple top, original uncovered Gibson Humbucker pickups and original hard case (estimate: $8,000 – $12,000) (photo above right); a circa 1979 Music Man 112 RD 50 amplifier that features a corduroy tolex finish with a rubber handle amplifier (estimate: $1,000 – $2,000) (photo left);

When it comes to female pioneers, there is no one greater and mightier than the one and only, Dolly Parton. A sensational piece (photo left) from the early career from the Country Music Icon and ten-time GRAMMY® award-winning singer, with a record fifty GRAMMY® nominations and two Academy Award nominations, will dazzle the auction stage–Parton’s custom-made figure-hugging jade green embellished 1970s stage ensemble worn in 1974 while performing at WBAP’s “Country Gold” in Arlington, Texas and on the cover of her 1978 album In the Beginning.
