Coldplay guitar up for auction

Chris Martin's first acoustic guitar, which he used during the recording of Coldplay's debut album, is expected to sell for thousands of pounds at auction.

The guitar, which he bought in Devon and took with him to university in London where the band got together, goes under the hammer at Bonhams in central London later this month.

It is estimated to fetch around €12,200.

Also up for sale are two guitars that belong to Eric Clapton.
