Andy Babiuk, Beatles gear, San Francisco, Backbeat books, 2001, p. 35, mentions a letter George Harrison wrote back home in late October 1960 to his friend Arthur Kelly. Is known the whole text of this letter??  ???

Thanks in advance and best wishes!!  ;)

These are the sentences quoted by Andy Babiuk:

"...He's [Tony Sheridan] now got a Fender guitar and amp like [Buddy Holly`s] and I play it well. It also has a vibrato and his bass player has a Fender Bass...

...Look out as I am thinking of getting yet again another new guitar, I may leave solids out of it this time and get an Everly Brother type massive Gibson as they are gear...

...I might manage a red Fender Stratocaster with gold plating...

...We have Pete Best, Mrs. Best's little lad, with us from Kasbah [sic] fame and he is drumming good...

...the only person who is any good in the group [Rory Storm & The Hurricanes] is the drummer [Ringo Starr]...

...It [Sutcliffe's Gibson GA-40 amp] has a fabulous tremolo on it and is the Les Paul model..."


No doubt this letter has to be full of very interesting info...

A Fender Bass??  ???















Harrison's remarks puzzles me. When did Sheridan have a Fender guitar and amp like Buddy Holly's?? And when did his bass player have a Fender bass??  ???
