A sitar used by George Harrison in 1965, the year the Beatles recorded Norwegian Wood sold Sept. 28 for $62,500, it was announced by Nate D. Sanders Auctions. The instrument was accompanied by two letters of authenticity, including one written by Pattie Boyd, who said Harrison played "Norwegian Wood" on the instrument for her when they were on their honeymoon.
