Phoebe Bridgers' Smashed 'SNL' Guitar Sells for over $100,000
Take that David Crosby!
Published Apr 12, 2021We recently learned that Phoebe Bridgers was putting her smashed Saturday Night Live guitar up for auction. And now that smashed-up Danelectro has sold — and for quite the pretty penny.
Following an online auction, Bridgers' guitar sold for a whopping $101,500 USD on Sunday (April 11), Variety reports.
As previously reported, the guitar auction was set up as a benefit for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards.
"I know she has a loyal fan base," said Anthony Ramos, the supervising producer of the GLAAD Media Awards, told Variety. "Saturday night when I went to bed, it was around $18,000, and I was like, 'That's a great number!' I was kind of hoping we would get to 25. Then I woke up and it was 40, then 50, then 80, and finally over 100. Obviously we were very pleasantly surprised. I'm so thankful someone wanted to support our work and wanted that guitar so badly."
Ramos added: "Obviously it's someone who's either a huge Phoebe Bridgers fan or someone who is really into broken guitars or someone who really wants to help us accelerate our work for the LGBTQ community, and hopefully it's someone who checks all three of those boxes."

We're guessing David Crosby is doing a massive eyeroll right about now.
