An Arizona music fan has sold his prized possession, an Air Guitar, on eBay for $5.50.

According to his eBay blurb the seller told prospective buyers "you are bidding on an original Air Guitar from the 80's. This one was used once at a Bon Jovi concert in 89 for about 3 hours. I have taken it out a few times since generally after about six beers and a couple of fruity shots".

The real selling point was "just imagine walking into your local bar, sitting down and having seven or eight mixed drinks, and pulling out this latently homosexual instrument of over intoxication."

After that endorsement, the bids just flowed in for the Air Guitar. They started at $1 and quickly jumped to $3 then up it went in 50c increments until it peaked at $5.50 and was sold to the lucky buyer.

The seller did point out that by buying an Air Guitar you are buying absolutely nothing but the bids came in regardless.

The highest bidder was also given a certified letter of authenticity.
