Offered to fans of BJ Wilson, by eBay auction:

These items (see below) have long been in the keeping of Gary Brooker: listen to his explanation of their history: click here.
In subsequent conversations between GB and BtP it was decided to offer the various relics in seven consignments, so that more people get the chance to own something BJ played.
We're treating them more as items of memorabilia than as musical instruments.
