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 limited edition J160E was recreated as Lennon’s instrument was in 1969.. This product comes with a case.
