According to The Associated Press, The Gibson Guitar factory in Montana is finishing a project to honor what would have been the 70th birthday of Beatles singer and guitarist John Lennon. Gibson Acoustic's director of sales and marketing said that Yoko Ono asked the company to release a limited number of J-160Es — the model of guitar her husband played. The company is releasing a total of three Lennon-played models.
The company made 70 of the all-white "Imagine" model, and 70 replicas of Lennon's J-160E as it was when he was murdered 20 years ago. On the guitar, Lennon had drawn sketches of himself at Ono. 500 replicas of an earlier model will also be released this weekend.
