A guitar Jerry Garcia used extensively in the late 1970s is going up for bids.

The Travis Bean TB500 was used during the sessions for The Grateful Dead’s 1977 album Terrapin Station as well as 90 Dead shows during that era. Steve Parish, Garcia’s longtime guitar tech, has vouched for the instrument’s authenticity, noting that it was Garcia’s third most-played guitar and has a sticker affixed to the body that reads, “Ass, Grass or Gas/Nobody Rides Free.” The guitar is expected to fetch between $150,000 and $200,000 at the Icons and Idols: Rock ‘n Roll Auction on December 6th at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, California.

Other notable items up for bids include Jimmy Page’s Roland G-707 synthesizer, a Hofner bass made specifically for Paul McCartney and guitars owned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
