Selling My Gretsch Ed Sullivan ‘George Harrison’ G6122-1962 Ebony “English Gentleman” produced exclusively for Roman Guitars in Las Vegas and this one was in the late Ed Roman Personal Collection on display in his store. From what I understand, Gretsch only made less than 200 of these commemorative George Harrisons Guitars and is in excellent condition with only a few marks from when Ed Roman had it on display in his office.  This is the ultimate Beatle Collector Guitar since it was a one-time only run from Gretsch factory personally for the Late Ed Roman. Shipping Rate listed is for U.S. buyers only, international bidders play ask for shipping quote before you buy.

From the Original Roman Guitars website listing:
When the Beatles started to get famous in the early 60s, George bought a 1962 Chet Atkins “Country Gentleman” Gretsch guitar. George can be seen using this one more often than anything else on stage. There were many attempts at reissuing the Country Gentleman as George played it and finally Gretsch has got it totally right. The Gretsch logo on the plexi pickguard is the only marking with two Filter-trons, Grover Imperials and even the dual mutes complete the recreation. The “Brittish Gentleman” Jet black version commemorates George Harrison’s re-finished guitar following the Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan show. George liked the ‘black’ color after seeing watching the performance on a black & white TV . Originally Gretsch affectionately dubbed the guitar the ” Ed Sullivan tribute model”, but is now simply referred to as the “British Gentleman”.   Gretsch issued these guitars in very limited quantities 40 years to the month after the Beatles appearance in February of 1964. This guitar is Gretsch’s exact reproduction of the Original George Harrison Black Country Gentleman. George’s original ebony Country Gentleman suffered damage beyond repair in 1965 when it fell of out of the Beatles van and was crushed by a lorry. Special Hard Shell Case Included.
