One of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Most Beloved Guitars
George Harrison received a rosewood telecaster from Fender in 1968. He quickly fell in love with the guitar and played it on Let It Be, Abbey Road, and during the Beatles’ world-changing concert on the roof, ensuring that it is forever linked with the band, Harrison, and rock ‘n’ roll. This limited-edition Fender George Harrison Telecaster re-creation resurrects that magic, offering you the chance to own the guitar that changed the world. There will never be another George Harrison, but luckily there are these Fender George Harrison Telecasters.
A historic electric guitar
In 1968, Fender built two all-rosewood Telecasters and sent one to George Harrison (the other was to go to Jimi Hendrix). George immediately bonded with the instrument and played it heavily on Abbey Road, Let It Be, and even for his guitar parts on Cream’s “Badge.” But it was the Beatles’ final concert on the roof that cemented that guitar as one of the most important in rock history. After George’s death, the original was sold back to the Harrison estate for nearly $500,000. But now you can make this re-creation your very own.
Re-creation with a bit of a modern twist
Fender took great care in the process of building the George Harrison Telecaster to remain respectful of George’s original guitar. The body and neck are both multi-piece rosewood with a maple spacer in the body. And Fender went so far as to load American Vintage ’64 Gray-bottom single-coil pickups into the guitar, nailing the tone and vibe of the original. However, the guitar’s chambered body does away with the anchor weight of the original design. Pull this guitar out of its case, and there will be no question who your greatest guitar inspiration is.
Incredibly limited edition
Right now is your chance to own this groundbreaking guitar. But with only a limited number being made for worldwide distribution, they will be sold-out before you know it. Even fewer of these solidbody electric guitars are allocated to North America, making their availability even more scarce. But Sweetwater was been able to get our hands on some for you. So give us a call right away to secure your piece of guitar, rock ‘n’ roll, and Beatles history. Now is your time to own a guitar that changed the world.
