Re: The Beatles Thread

I know. I thought at first maybe Steve Winwood, the guy closest to George. Not sure now, though. Donovan?

Re: The Beatles Thread

Guessing from the pick guard and the general availability and popularity at the time, it's a Martin guitar.

Re: The Beatles Thread

/\  I've got a few old Martins right here with me right now, wish I could see the headstock of George's guitar more clearly .....

Re: The Beatles Thread

Nice. I don't have any Martins. Only a Taylor 6-string, vintage 1994. Good enough for me, though. Jealous of your Martin possessions, of course!

I once had a 12-string Guild that I loved to death but had to pawn because my ex-wife made me. Young, stupid love.

Re: The Beatles Thread

Cool. I do love my Taylor, I have to say. A 710 rosewood, ebony on the frets, pine on top. Sounds like s dream, action is slippery. I could be a guitar collector, if I let myself, but it always felt like a terribly expensive habit. I occasionally will wonder into a guitar shop and play old Martins, though. They are a great guitar.

Re: The Beatles Thread

/\   I'm locked into it with my same old stuff, Martin and Fender, I've had it for many years ....

somebody gave me a nice vintage guitar a couple of months ago, I think it's out of here though ....

I know I'll regret it but I don't want a mountain of stuff, everybody in my family has too much of their stuff in my house, still doing spring cleaning .....

I think I figured it out: it's George with members of Badfinger!

Not Badfinger I'm afraid. It is Donovan and a guy called Sid Maurer who worked as an artist for record companies amongst other stuff
