What we say:
At A Glance:
The Limited Edition George Harrison Rocky Strat should need no introduction. Help! Marked the first time a Stratocaster appeared in Beatles music ( though back then it bore a shiny new sonic blue finish ) and it wouldn't be the last! Appearing on Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, this guitar certainly made the rounds.
It would be at this point George decided to grab a brush and paint over the sonic blue with something a bit more psychedelic, appearing in the Magical Mystery Tour film as this new incarnation.
The Fender Custom Shop and Master Builder Paul Waller bring this faithful recreation to life, with the exact measurements, detailing, pickups and wiring presented alongside the famous DIY paint job.
Features We Love:
How can you not love the incredibly bright and inspired paint job? From the colours to the "Rocky", "Go Cat Go" and "Bebopalula" details, the finish has been meticulously recreated.
There is even a replica "Grimwoods" decal on the back of the headstock reminding you where the original came from back in 1965.
Recreated Vintage Appointments
Everything about this beauty screams '60s, not least the Abigail Ybarra Hand-Wound Strat Single Coils, and the rare asymmetrical Oval C profile
This Custom Shop Instrument has the feel and sound from an era gone by, so don't let this guitar gently weep in a corner, get it plugged in and start time travelling!
Paul Waller has been with the Custom Shop for over 15 years, and in this time he has created instruments for U2's Adam Clayton, Bono, the Rolling Stones' own Keith Richards, Nile Rodgers, Buddy Guy, the list goes on!
You can't deny this instrument will be in a league of its own in terms of quality, a true performer as well as a looker!
- Whether you are a collector, a Beatles fan or just want a very rare psychadelic strat, then this is the one for you!
- Masterbuilder quality and custom appointments make this every bit a performing instrument as it is an art piece
- Meticulously recreated specifications and paint scheme really stand this one out from the crowd
