DALLAS (AP) - A guitar played by Bob Dylan at notable concerts in the 1970s is expected to sell for more than $300,000 when it goes up for auction next month.

Heritage Auctions said the 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar that once belonged to the singer-songwriter will be offered up Nov. 11 in Dallas. Heritage said Dylan played the guitar through his set at George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh in New York City in 1971. Dylan also played the guitar during his Rolling Thunder Revue tour from October 1975 to May 1976.

The guitar is being offered at auction by Larry Cragg, who was Dylan's guitar repairman when Cragg purchased it from him for $500 in 1977.

A copy of the bill of sale is included.
