John Lennon’s Fretless Guitar
Some time back in the history of the sixties we wrote about John Lennon’s fretless guitar. Well, as suspected, it ended up in George Harrison’s collection and is a sunburst Bartell.
In the above picture, the fretless Bartell can be seen next to Harrison’s left arm. It is believed Harrison gave it to Ray Russell when working on the film Water in 1985.
Our friend Paul Brett is committed to tracking down the remaining Bartell / Black Widow / Acoustic fretless and is looking for any further info on these rare prototypes. You can contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org.
