I was just wondering if anyone knows anything about the guitar George Martin is holding? It seems to be a Gibson Les Paul and none of the Beatles at the time owned a guitar like that. The picture was taken at a Beatles autograph session, sometime in 1963, where they are pictured signing autographs for fans that mailed items to them. Dick James and Brian Epstein were at the session also.
I was just wondering if George had got the guitar signed by the Beatles and if it was for a friend or his personal item? Since signed guitars by the Beatles are very rare I think only two or three exist and they aren't really sure if they were actually signed by the Beatles or Neil Aspinall.
