Presley memorabilia including one of the guitars he used while stationed as

an American soldier in Bad Nauheim in Germany in 1959 Elvis gave the guitar to the then

girlfriend as a parting gift, since he had just met Precilla who would be

became his wife. The discarded girl later sold the guitar to a shop

owner.
