1964 found the Beatles at their very pinnacle of fame. From Buckingham Palace to Shea Stadium, the mop-topped lads from Liverpool spread Beatlemania throughout the world transforming polite young citizens into screaming hords of rabid rock fans.

The Rose Morris Rickenbacker was as much a part of The Beatles early sound as the Vox amps they made so famous. The trademark jangley sound was in full effect with this perfect pairing and worked in perfect tandem with their look and vocal style. Classy and cool. 

Though Rickenbacker was an American company, they did customize the Rose Morris additions with a more traditional f-hole to appeal to the Europeon market. Thus, history was written with a legendary brand, supplier and band!
