The Gibson J-160E that he used for the rest of his career as a Beatle, and that appeared on many of their recordings.

"Take this Brother, may it serve you well."

George doesn't look particularly thrilled with his. I guess he traded his in for the Gretsch or the Rickenbacker.

Not quite Excalibur plucked from The Lady of the Lake. It was a keeper, tho.

The date of the photo is September 10, 1962.
Lennon's Gibson was used throughout the 'Please Please Me' sessions, Harrison only seemed to use his for tv appearances. John's jumbo was stolen during the '63 Christmas show at Finsbury Park Astoria Theatre,London. However, John and George had gotten their identical guitars mixed up,so it was the one registered to George that disappeared.
