Julien’s Auctions says the ”quiet Beatle” played the Hoffner Club 40 when the group played clubs around Liverpool as The Quarrymen.
Harrison traded his acoustic guitar for the electric model with Ray Ennis, who was part of The Swinging Blue Jeans.
Harrison donated it to a band competition in the mid 1960s and it was won by a member of a German group, who died last year.
The auction house estimates the guitar will go for between $200,000 and $300,000.
Meanwhile, a 1965 Fender Telecaster owned by The Band’s Robbie Robertson played by Harrison, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan’s also on the block.
That’s expected to sell for between $400,000 and $600,000.
The auction will be held at New York’s Hard Rock Cafe on May 19.
