As well as the Richards NFT, the auction lot includes a black Gibson ES-335 electric-acoustic guitar hand-signed by Richards. A hard guitar case is also provided.
The NFT, described as “a digital version of the signed guitar”, comes with a four-second clip of Richards signing the guitar in question at New York City’s Germano Studios “as a seal of authenticity”.
