Yes, it's a 1969 Fender Rosewood Telecaster and an original one.

I do not think you will find very many for sale in Europe right now.

Two prototypes were designed and built by Roger Rossmeisl whose fertile mind also gave us the Thinline Telecaster and Philip Kubicki, the best one being shipped to Harrison.

The original run of production guitars was constructed from a sandwich of solid rosewood and maple and was used by George for the Get Back sessions as well as the Let it Be film and famous rooftop performance.

An iconic instrument was born

This guitar is in great shape. The clear poly finish showcases superbly the grain of the rosewood and though it shows some signs of wear on the back, this doesn’t detract from the overall look.

The one-piece neck is in an equally stunning shape, and the maple strip with rosewood makes for a nice juxtaposition.

The fretboard is in good condition and the frets have been replaced with the same original size last year and have plenty of life left in them.

The plastics are in good condition. The hardware is in good shape, with some signs of wear but nothing too extensive.

Electrically everything seems to be correct.

The guitar comes with a non-original case but a vintage one. Plugged in, the fun really starts. The bridge pickup twangs without being too harsh, undoubtedly helped by the lower value pots. The neck pickup has that warmth that helps balance the instrument. The middle position is just the icing on the cake. The weight relieving helps make the guitar more manageable.

This is a must for any Harrison fans or anyone looking for their favorite instrument in a different flavor.

Don’t let it slip away.
