George Harrison had given the guitar to Klaus Voorman who had it fro many years and had made a few mods. Klaus returned the guitar to George who had it put back to its original form. Harrison family has the guitar now.

Purchased at Manny’s Music on West 48th St. near Times Square. Same place where the famous Red Fender Stratocaster that was made famous by Hank Marvin was bought. Both ended up in Great Britain. Gee I miss Manny’s!

Interesting bit of guitar history.

Dan Erlewine first saw this Tele back in the 1960s, before Mike Bloomfield recorded with it on Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited album. That was also before Bloomfield and Dylan were booed for going electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. And before Bloomfield recorded the first Paul Butterfield Blues Band album with this guitar. There’s a lot of history in this Telecaster!
