George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster
To honor George Harrison’s venerable career, Fender has created the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster, a limited-edition commemoration that embodies Harrison’s elegantly restrained playing style and sound. Based on the original Telecaster created for Harrison by luthier Roger Rossmeisl, this model remains true to its heritage with a classic look and the unique tone only an all-rosewood guitar can produce. The body is chambered for reduced weight and increased resonance.Other features include a rosewood neck with a laminated 9.5” radius rosewood fingerboard and a custom neck plate engraved with an “Om” symbol.
A classic in every way, this refined instrument was born in the era that defined rock n’ roll. Harrison’s legacy is one of innovation and creativity, and the rosewood Telecaster became one of his primary instruments of choice. Only 1,000 units will be available worldwide. Here’s Harrison in action with his rosewood Telecaster in January 1969 with a little-known British band called the Beatles:
