A CLASSIC IN EVERY WAY

From a legendary guitar player, a legendary guitar: The George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster®. Admired for his inspiring playing ability and songwriting prowess, George Harrison reigns as one of the premier icons in music history. This limited-edition Tele®, based on the guitar created exclusively for Harrison by Roger Rossmeisel in 1967, embodies George's elegantly restrained playing style and sound.

ONE OF FENDER’S MOST UNIQUE CREATIONS, THE ROSEWOOD TELECASTER ENTERED THE REALM OF PUBLIC CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE CAPABLE HANDS OF GEORGE HARRISON IN THE LATE 1960S.

As the story goes, Fender planned to introduce an all-rosewood Telecaster to its wide range of offerings. Who better to play the prototype than Harrison?

After he received the gift in 1968, the Rosewood Telecaster quickly became an iconic instrument, as it was used it in the film Let It Be, during the Beatles’ Abbey Road recording sessions and even in the Beatles’ iconic final public performance on the rooftop of the Apple Corps headquarters.

Now, it is available in Fender’s new limited-edition George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster, a commemoration of Harrison’s legacy. Based on the original that was built by luthier Roger Rossmeisl, this model boasts a chambered rosewood body, a rosewood neck and fingerboard, and a custom neck plate engraved with an Om symbol.

 

Key Features:

  • Lightweight chambered rosewood body
  • Mid-'60s "C"-shaped rosewood neck; 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard
  • Two American Vintage '64 gray-bottom single-coil Telecaster pickups
  • Custom "Om" logo neck plate
  • Includes hardshell case
