    Description

    The Beatles: George Harrison / Spike Milligan owned Ltd Edition Silver Series Fender Stratocaster guitar. A Fender Stratocaster guitar, serial no. L-036415, given by George Harrison to Spike Milligan, in a hardshell tweed case. The guitar is accompanied by a letter on Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, Europe, letterhead from Jamie Crompton, artist relations manager, Fender Europe, dated 16/3/03, that reads: "To Whom It May Concern: History of Fender Stratocaster, No. L-036415. This guitar was delivered from Fender Europe to legendary Beatles guitarist George Harrison. He personalized the instrument and had it 'set up' to his specification. George Harrison gave the guitar to the genius comedian/poet/author, and musician, Spike Milligan. Spike passed the instrument on to international session guitarist based in London, Troy Tempest." This guitar stands as one of the last Harrison guitars known to exist in private hands. Given the extreme rarity and extraordinary desirability, this guitar stands as a superb investment grade relic for any serious music memorabilia collector or Strat connoisseur.
