The custom rosewood Telecaster that Fender built specially for George Harrison in 1968 wasn't in his arsenal for long, but because the Beatle used it extensively on the Fab Four's final records – Let It Be and Abbey Road – it's become one of the electric guitars with which he's most often associated.

Fender introduced an ultra-limited edition Custom Shop replica of the legendary Tele in 2016, and followed that up with a more accessible Artist Signature version of the guitar in 2017.
