John Lennon’s Gretsch G6120DC Featured In Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Posted:

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame naturally has an extensive Beatles exhibit, and that collection was recently bolstered by the addition of John Lennon’s 1963 Gretsch G6120DC guitar.

Howard Kramer, the H.O.F.’s curatorial director, explained that Lennon that the guitar was mainly kept in the studio.

“John picked up this guitar in 1966.  He used it in the sessions for ‘Paperback Writer, but in fact, he never even played it on stage,” Kramer said.
