Fender Custom Shop George Harrison TributeTelecaster · Electric Guitar

In honour of the "quiet" Beatle George Harrison the Fender Custom Shop has let his famous rosewood Telecaster from "Let It Be" come back to life again. 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.

Fender Custom Shop
The most successful Fender Custom Shop products are the instruments from the Time Machine Series. Here you can find replicas of the guitars and basses, that made Fender legendary in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Depending on your taste, the instruments are optically aligned to their various vintage conditions. Relics look as if they had all the rigors of tour life subjected to them for years and accordingly show their many "scars". Closet Classics on the other hand represent instruments that have been treated more carefully and their age can be detected only because of paint cracks and minor flaws. NOS (New Old Stock) instruments are - if they were real - the dream of every collector. Like being untouched over the years still in original factory condition, so as new but also old.

Most Custom Shop instruments are "team built", which means that the guitar is built by a small team of 5 specialists. Each of these teams is headed by a masterbuilder, one of those grandmasters of wood who spend the bigger part of their time building so-called "masterbuilt" instruments, where the masterbuilder and he alone does all the work from scratch.

If you cannot find your dream Fender guitar in our range - no problem! Let the Custom Shop build it for you. This does not necessarily need to be more expensive than a regular custom shop instrument but will meet all your individual needs. Talk to us and we'll tell you what is possible...and for which price.
