Kruse GWS Auctions is putting Presley’s flaming red Hagstrom Viking II guitar on the block.

The instrument was used by the Presley during his nationally televised 1968 “Comeback Special” after the star had devoted much of the previous seven years to his movie career.

The eye-catching instrument was also featured on the cover of the “From Elvis in Memphis” album in 1969.

8 things you may not know about Elvis Presley
Presley, who died in 1977, has sold over 1 billion records worldwide.

The guitar first belonged to American guitarist Al Casey, who was asked by producers to let Elvis use it during his TV special because of the guitar’s flashy and fiery appeal. According to the auctioneers, it has not been offered for auction since the 1990s.

But the classic commodity comes with some heavy financial strings attached — the starting price has been set at $250,000.
Other collectables on auction include Michael Jackson’s crystal-studded glove, Elizabeth Taylor’s blue pearl drop earrings and a 1950 Cadillac Fleetwood featured in the movie “The Godfather.”

Live bidding will be held March 27.
