UK Guitarist Magazine July 2020: The Beatles Paul McCartney

The Beatles were the biggest band in history - and their guitar sounds influenced all that followed in rock 'n' roll. In this special collector's edition, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the band's final album Let It Be, guitar historian examines the guitars that powered the Fab Four, from Lennon's Rickenbacker 325 to George's late-era Gibson SG, revealing all the twists and turns of an often complex evolution of gear - and how it influenced the legendary music the band made. Illustrated with reference-grade pics of the original instruments, it's a must for any guitarist who thrilled to the opening riff to Paperback Writer or wondered how the band transitioned from Rickys and Gretsches to Fenders and Gibsons. Elsewhere in this packed issue, we talk to jazz-blues maestro Johnny A. and review the hottest new gear from Music Man's stunning Sabre electric to the affordable but tone rich Vox Cambridge50 amp, which scored a rare Gold Award from our reviewers.
