Fender's limited edition George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster now available

Only 1,000 units of the guitar will be available worldwide.

Fender has released its limited edition Rosewood Telecaster inspired by music legend George Harrison.

First unveiled in Nashville at Summer NAMM earlier this year, the new model is now available.

Only 1,000 units of the guitar will be available worldwide, which is inspired by the one Fender built specifically for Harrison in 1968.

The original instrument instantly gained significance when it launched, as it was the first all-rosewood guitar ever to be produced by Fender and was unveiled in the hands of the one of world’s most recognised guitarists.

Harrison’s Telecaster was used while recording some of the most recognisable music of the late 1960s. He also played it during The Beatles’ historic London ‘Rooftop Concert’ in 1969.

“The Rosewood Telecaster was exceptional due to its craftsmanship and venture into uncharted territory, serving as the prototype for future Fender electric guitars of its kind,” said Justin Norvell, SVP Fender Products.

“George Harrison showcased the uniqueness of the guitar through his talent and passion for music by using it in some of the most influential concerts and albums in music history.

"With the help of the Harrison Estate, we hope to encourage the next generation of players to explore music and draw inspiration from Harrison’s performance style on a guitar that represents artistic creativity.”

The new model remains true to its heritage, with a classic look and unique all-rosewood tone. The body is chambered for reduced weight and increased resonance, with the neck featuring a laminated 9.5” radius rosewood fingerboard and custom neck plate engraved with an Om symbol.

The George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster is available now with an RRP of $2,499.99.
