About This Listing

Help! marks the first appearance of a Stratocaster in Beatles music; heard in the low drone throughout that album's "Ticket to Ride" and in the solo for "You're Going to Lose That Girl." Near the end of 1965, the Stratocaster were put to even more prominent use on groundbreaking album Rubber Soul, most notably on the ringing chordal solo in "Nowhere Man", and again on mid-1966's Revolver. In 1967, sometime between the end of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band sessions and the June 25 live worldwide telecast of "All You Need is Love", Harrison took up paint and brush himself to give his Stratocaster a multicoloured psychedelic dayglo paint job. It also appeared prominently in the "I Am the Walrus" segment of 1967's Magical Mystery Tour film. The guitar remained a favourite of Harrison's for the rest of the decade, and by December 1969 Harrison had painted "Bebopalula" on the upper body, "Go Cat Go" on the pickguard and "Rocky" - the guitar's nickname - on the headstock. Master Builder Paul Waller examined and measured the original in exacting detail—body, neck (with a rare asymmetrical C profile), pickups, wiring, and everything else right down to Harrison's famous DIY paint job. Even the retailer's "Grimwoods" decal remains in place on the back of the headstock. With these features and more, it's an amazing and meticulously crafted Custom Shop tribute to a truly magical guitar played and loved by one of rock's greatest guitarists.
