15th August 2010, Comments 0 comments

A coffee-stained piano used by The Beatles at London's Abbey Road studios has been withdrawn from sale, the auctioneers said Sunday, without giving a reason for a decision.

The battered Challen upright piano, which can be heard on hits such as "Paperback Writer" and "Tomorrow Never Knows", both recorded in Abbey Road in 1966, was valued at more than 100,000 pounds (150,000 dollars,120,000 euros).

"This lot has been withdrawn," Bonhams auctioneers said on its website. A spokeswoman told AFP she could not comment on why the sale was cancelled.

It was due to be sold as part of an auction at the Goodwood vintage festival of music, fashion and art in southeastern England.
