The George Harrison Tribute
The George Harrison Tribute
Fender guitars has revealed the George Harrison Tribute Rosewood Telecaster - a guitar dubbed as 'the most iconic Telecaster in Fender history.'

Harrison's original guitar which was famously used in The Beatles hit song 'Let it Be' was a prototype model but now Fender has resurrected this iconic Telecaster.

Fender's master builder Paul Waller, took the reins on this and recreated it with meticulous detail and precision after heavily examining Harrison's unique original guitar.

The guitar boasts hand wound 'Abby' pickups, a sleek rosewood neck made from two pieces of wood and capped with a rosewood fingerboard - helping set it aside from the usual one-piece construction. The nut is also 1/8" wider than most classic Telecasters making it easier to play whilst adding crisp articulation.
