Description

How was George Harrison Stratocaster Rocky Born?

 

The Stratocaster rocky started out as a Sonic Blue Stratocaster that was purchased in England. George’s FIRST Stratocaster.

 

According to George “everything was more colorful in the 1960s” so he ended up painting the guitar with Day-Glo paint (new at the time) with a brush. He also used some of his first wife’s, Patti Boyd (later, Layla) nail vanish and naming the guitar Rocky Stratocaster, George did not think it was a great paint job and surely had no idea just how iconic it would become.

George played the All You Need is Love on the Stratocaster Rocky during in 1967 for the first live global satellite televised event Our World on June 25, 1967. The Stratocaster Rocky was also in the Beatles film Magic Mystery Tour on “I Am Walrus” the same year.
