When Beatles manager Brian Epstein purchased the J160E in 1962 it became one of John’s favorite instruments. It has gone through a number of cosmetic changes from its new factory condition to a psychedelic paint job to being covered in caricatures of Yoko Ono and himself. His J160E has been featured on countless studio recordings, movies, and live performances. This 70th anniversary limited edition J160E was created in a Soft White finish to reflect on John’s life and music during the recording of Imagine.. This product comes with a case.
