Back By Popular Demand, The George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster



Fender announces the second iteration of an iconic model in their Artist Signature series, the George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster®guitar.

In 2017, Fender honored one of the premier icons in music history, George Harrison, with a limited-edition George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster®. This guitar was based on arguably the most iconic Telecaster in Fender history, a Rosewood Telecaster prototype gifted by Fender to the talented 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 unforgettable 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, contributed to a groundswell of 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.
