2017 Fender George Harrison Rosewood Telecaster

CITES. Blah, blah, blah. Long story short, rosewood is fixing to get very expensive and you will be seeing less of it. So I was more than a little surprised when Fender announced they were going to bring this guitar out. The history behind this guitar is extensive and you can read all about it elsewhere. What you have here is one of a thousand and possibly the last batch of Rosewood Telecasters that Fender will ever make. This particular one weighs 7.6 pounds (weighed by Mike at Harry's Guitar Shop in Raleigh). It sounds REALLY good. I know this because when Harry saw it he looked at me with sad, sad eyes and said "Can I plug it in?" and of course I said okay. I am glad I did, because this guitar has some gorgeous tone (Oh Lord! Did I just infer that the wood may have some influence on the tone? I think I did!). This was bought as an investment. Call me in a year and make an offer.
