One-of-a-kind Fender featuring Harrison and McCartney

Red-bodied Fender Bullet ‘stratocaster-style’ electric guitar, signed on the pickguard in silver ink by Paul McCartney, and on the body in black felt tip by George Harrison and silver ink by Pete Best and Sean Lennon. In fine condition. Accompanied by a Gator hardshell case. Consignor notes that the Harrison signature was acquired in the 1980s; McCartney signed on November 29, 2005, in Los Angeles; Lennon signed on September 24, 2003, in Los Angeles; and Best signed on August 9, 2011, in Memphis. With McCartney, Harrison, Best, and Sean Lennon in place of his father, this exceptionally rare piece is representative of the very first iteration of the Beatles. Guitars signed on the body are far less common than those signed on the pickguard, and such examples featuring Harrison are practically unheard of—the addition of the other signatures makes this unquestionably unique. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
