Gallaton Champion / Gallaton Champion / 1956 / Redburst / Guitar For Sale
From a private collection.
Gallatone Champion "John Lennon" c.'56-’57
This is exactly as the first guitar Lennon owned. The holy grail for Beatles guitar collectors.
Used in his early days with the Quarrymen. It is this guitar that is seen in the famous photo of him playing at the back of a truck at the church fair where he met Paul McCartney.
This one features the redburst finnish, just like Lennons!
Beaten up but unlike most Gallatones from these years, this one is actually playable.
This guitar is not in the shop. Call or email.
