    Beatles - George Harrison Signed Stratocaster Pickguard. Signed in black felt tip on the front of a brown Chandler Industries Stratocaster pickguard "to Norm best wishes / George Harrison". Like many celebrated musicians who bought guitars from Norm's Rare Guitars, George Harrison became a noteworthy client. During one of his visits, Norm asked him to sign this Stratocaster pickguard. In Norm's haste, he forgot to remove the plastic protector on the front of the pickguard, so the inscription and signature are written over the protector. Regardless, this is a very rare authentic signed Harrison pickguard autographed right in front of Norm! Comes with full LOP from Norm Harris. The plastic is coming up along in a few areas along the edge, otherwise a great signature and in overall Excellent condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    Norman Harris on the signed pickguard: "The George Harrison pickguard was signed for me in the mid 90's. George had just bought a Fender electric mandolin as well as a couple other vintage items and I asked him if he would sign the pickguard for me. At the time, the reissue pickguard still had its plastic on it. George signed it over the plastic, and because it was such a spur of the moment thing, I didn't even realize there was plastic over the guard."
