A wonderful recreation of the guitar from Let it Be.
Fender hand-delivered the prototype of this rosewood Tele to George Harrison in 1968. He used it during the Let it Be sessions including the Beatle's final rooftop concert atop Apple Records on January 30th, 1969. In December of that year George gifted his special Tele to fellow guitarist Delaney Bramlett following an inspiring performance by Delaney that George had attended. It was cherished by Delaney for many years and then auctioned in 2003.
Recreated here in a limited edition, the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster recaptures the magic of George's guitar. It was master-built by Paul Waller and features a rosewood body, neck and fingerboard. Vintage single-coil pickups deliver authentic '60s tone. Chrome hardware includes vintage-style tuners and bridge. Comes with hardshell case.
Master Builder Paul Waller is a Southern California native with woodworking and guitar making in his blood. He built his first guitar at age 14 in his high school woodshop and hasn’t looked back since.
He joined a cabinet shop right out of high school and, after a stint at a small Southern California guitar maker, enrolled at the acclaimed Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix in 2000. There he trained extensively in electric and acoustic guitar construction and repair, specializing in arch-top work, which remains his favorite.
Waller joined Fender in 2003 fresh from his training at Roberto-Venn. He spent two years working closely with master arch-top craftsman Bob Benedetto, and he became steeped in the many facets of building techniques from all the Custom Shop’s Master Builders.
His Fender Custom Shop work has included bass guitars for U2’s Adam Clayton, co-work on a Stratocaster for Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, and highly unusual hand-carved arch-top and “carved brick” Telecaster.
