Fender Announces the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster

The second iteration of a model honoring George Harrison's legacy features a rosewood body and vintage ‘64 Telecaster pickups.


In 2017, Fender honored George Harrison with a limited-edition George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster. This guitar was based on the iconic Rosewood Telecaster prototype gifted by Fender to the guitarist in 1968. Harrison fell in love with the instrument and used it for the rest of the decade including during the Let It Be sessions and the notable final performance on the rooftop of Apple Corps headquarters.

The initial release of these signature Telecaster guitars in 2017 was limited to just 1,000 units worldwide and is marked as one of the fastest selling models within the series . This exclusiveness, coupled with the success of the landmark documentary that featured the Rosewood prototype "Get Back" in 2021 (an eight-hour opus documenting the Beatles in 1969), contributed to interest in this guitar and its re-release today.

The George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster is inspired by the original instrument while making it more accessible to the modern player. Its Chambered Rosewood body keeps the weight down while adding resonance; a Rosewood "C" shaped neck with a modern 9.5" radius provides comfort for all playing styles and its Pure Vintage '64 Telecaster pickups are paired perfectly to the Rosewood, showcasing the wood's natural tone.

  • Pure Vintage ‘64 Telecaster Pickups
  • Late-60’s “C”-shaped neck with 9.5” Radius & 21 Medium Jumbo Frets
