See the auction on eBayShortly after the episode, airing the $90k (Pawn Stars/Harrison) purchase from Mary Fords nephew, the Guitar appeared on eBay where it sold for $110,000.

The Guitar, a 1961 Gibson 'SG', was owned Les Paul’s ex-wife Mary Ford, and was sold with a number of Les Paul’s personal items.

According to the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop (Pawn Stars) eBay listing; "Les is told not to sign a contract with Gibson" in a letter which is included in the auction lot.
