(Classic Rock) The guitar that shocked Bob Dylan fans at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 has been found and valued at $500,000. And the case holding the Fender Stratocaster also contained some unpublished lyrics written by the iconic musician.

Investigators on TV show History Detectives have verified it's the genuine article after the person who currently keeps it told how Dylan left it on a plane after the controversial concert.

His brief set provoked a massive backlash from the folk music fraternity, with one leading light calling Dylan's transition to electric music "tenth-rate pop-pap drivel." Recordings include booing from the crowd, although it's said the negative reaction was simply because he was only given time to perform three songs.
