Norman's Rare Guitars's Norman Harris has announced that he will be putting up some of his personal Tom Petty collection for sale.

The items will be sold at a Dallas auction this 21st July via Heritage Auctions, including Petty's 1965 Gibson SG in cherry red.

It is reported that Tom Petty initially bought the guitar from Harris and was traded back to Harriss for a Rose Morris Rickenbacker. Petty used the guitar during the True Confessions tour in 1986 when Petty and the Heartbreakers supported Bob Dylan. The Gibson SG also features Petty's signature "Tom Petty '88".

Among the collection are a white '63 SG Junior, the iconic top hat from his Traveling Wilburys days and some of Petty's stage jackets that were worn across tours in the 80s and 90s.
