Built after careful examination of the fabled original, the Fender Limited Edition George Harrison Tribute Rosewood Telecaster employs hand-selected rosewood throughout the guitar’s construction for a lustrous tribute to the Beatle.
Fender are releasing, for perhaps the last time ever, an extremely limited edition all-Rosewood George Harrison Telecaster. Due to the recent CITES laws regarding Rosewood, it is likely that a guitar such as this will be a thing of the past before we know it. Find out all about it below!
Admired for his inspiring playing ability and song writing prowess, George Harrison reigns as one of the premier icons in music history. To honour Harrison’s venerable career, Fender created the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster, a limited edition commemoration that embodies George’s elegantly restrained playing style and sound.
Based on the original Telecaster created for Harrison by Roger Rossmeisel, this guitar 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 from the era that defined rock n’ roll. George Harrison’s Legacy is one of innovation and creativity, and the rosewood Telecaster became one of his primary instruments of choice. Limited to 1000 instruments worldwide, the George Harrison Telecaster is an homage to a master and destined to become a treasured addition to any collection.
