What are the differences between this George Harrison Telecaster with the regular one?
The first Rosewood Telecaster was a gift to Harrison to be used in the movie Let It Be. Rossmeisl and Philip Kubicki made two prototypes and chose the best one for Harrison. The George Harrison Telecaster guitar’s body was made with a thin layer of maple wood sandwiched between a solid rosewood back and top. “I spent hours sanding the bodies to perfection,” recalls Kubicki. The rosewood neck was built with a separate rosewood fingerboard glued to it. The whole George Harrison Telecaster guitar had a special satin polyurethane finish. Historians say that Harrison’s guitar was flown to England (in its own seat) accompanied by a courier, and hand-delivered to the Apple offices in December 1968.

First come, First Served!
Kubicki adds, “I remember when I saw the George Harrison Telecaster guitar for the first time in the Let It Be film. I was so thrilled I almost jumped out of my seat.” The guitar was used almost exclusively by Harrison in the Get Back recording sessions and was chosen by him to play the final roof-top performance on January 30, 1969. The next day, another performance was staged in the Apple basement studio. Harrison used his George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood for that performance as well. Shortly after this, the band would go their separate ways forever.
Later The George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood was added to regular production, however the production models were slightly different than Harrison’s model. They were made with a one-piece rosewood neck, with a special satin polyurethane finish. Production started in 1969 and each George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood guitar was sold for $375, but now it is sold for $5899!!!

HISTORIC GEORGE HARRISON TELECASTER, Just for fans!
George Harrison’s 1968 Rosewood Telecaster was used in the Let It Be movie, in the Abbey Road album recording, and in the Cream song Badge. George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood was also used in The Beatles’ memorable live roof-top performance at the Apple building in London.
The George Harrison Telecaster is one of the staples of line of telecasters. It is in the late sixties, there were only a few versions of it available. It was around that time that German Master Builder Roger Rossmeisl designed two innovative Telecasters: the Thinline George Harrison Telecaster and the Rosewood Telecaster.
Almost a year later, Harrison gave the George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood guitar to Delaney Bramlett following a performance at Royal Albert Hall. Harrison had attended the show and performed on-stage along side Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton. Following this, Clapton invited Harrison to join the group for a few shows throughout Great Britain and Denmark.
Bramlett has said that during that short tour, they would ofter switch guitars with each other, but that he would mostly play his newly-acquired Rosewood Telecaster. He considered the guitar to be one of his dearest possessions. He went on to keep the George Harrison Telecaster in excellent condition for almost three decades.
Guitar collectors, music historians and Beatles fans spent years speculating about what had become of George Harrison’s Rosewood Telecaster. Very few people ever saw the George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood guitar in person. Then, in 1998, Delaney Bramlett offered to auction it off, however he was forced to withdraw the George Harrison Telecaster when his asking price of $200,000 was not met.
Bramlett offered to auction the George Harrison Telecaster Rosewood guitar again in 2003, two years after Harrison died from lung cancer. He claimed that Harrison had recommended that he sell it before somebody killed him for it. The George Harrison Telecaster was purchased by actor Ed Begley, Jr. on behalf of Harrison’s widow, Olivia, for more than $470,000. Thus, the guitar found its way back home.
