Product Description

Rickenbacker 420 George Harrison of the Beatles Fireglo Solid Body Electric Guitar For Sale

The story of George Harrison´s Rickenbacker 425 or 420.

George Harrison's 1962 Rickenbacker guitar has sold at auction for $657,000. Harrison purchased the guitar for $400 in 1963 at Fenton's Music store in Mount Vernon, Illinois, while visiting his sister. The Julien's Auctions sale of rock 'n' roll memorabilia was held Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York.

Serial# BH 439 made in August 1962, was shipped from the factory in the Fireglo finish. this instrument was shipped in error, as a Model 425 even thought it was a Model 420, having no vibrato.

Just after his return to England Harrison performed with his new 425 during The Beatles' first appearance on the "Ready Steady Go" television show. Harrison had the guitar refinished from a Fireglo red to black to match John Lennon's Rickenbacker. Later he added a second pickup.

Fab-guitars.com is selling a model made in August 1965. Scratches, nicks, Dents...sure there is... after all, it is a 49 year old guitar with lots of playing time. Plays and sounds great. The only upgrade to the guitar is the German made Schaller Tuners. All you have to do is paint it black and add a second pickup.
