So discreet and unobtrusive Harrisons guitar also was at that time, it was so important to the contribution he made to the development of rock guitar as we know it today. George Harrison is certainly one of the most influential guitarists and songwriters of all time. Master builder Paul Waller could inspect the original instrument, so that it could be reconstructed as accurately as possible. Experts know of course that these details are what makes the exclusive Custom Shop creations different and so is the smooth Palisander neck with rosewood fingerboard - as in Harrison's guitar - not one, but two parts. Just the visible joint is a typical feature of this instrument. The saddle was 1/8 "wider than a Vintage Telecaster, thereby results in an unusual feeling: The larger string spacing facilitates gripping of chords which should then sound particularly clear and crisp. Paul Waller created this tribute to a historically significant guitar masterly and with much attention to detail. Exceptional design accents make the George Harrison Tribute Rosewood Telecaster into an instrument, as it can only be built in a dream factory - the Fender Custom Shop. To top it all off even the legendary Abigail "Abby" Ybarra came back from the well-deserved retirement and wound the pickups for this extraordinary guitar.
