Description
George Harrison signed acoustic guitar, together with autograph book signed by Harrison in 1964. An acoustic guitar, signed George Harrison on the main body, together with an autograph book signed on one page George Harrison in ink. The guitar's owner obtained the signatures at a party held for his sister, Dawn's, 20th birthday on Saturday 29th February 1964. Being a leap year baby she always made her real birthday a celebration, and what could have been more impressive than it being attended by one of the Fab Four. The party was held at their parents' house in a suburb of London. Dawn, at the time, worked for EMI Records and was based at Manchester Square, London, and in her spare time helped run a fan club for Bobby Shafto. George turned up at the party unannounced with Bobby Shafto, in an E Type Jaguar, after having only recently returned from the Beatles successful first ever tour of America.The guitar's owner, who was 13 years old at the time, persuaded George to not only sign this acoustic guitar but also his autograph book.He recalls how George added three kisses to the book's autograph, but on realising his signature was for a young teenage boy he quickly crossed out the three x's.
