John Lennon playing his 1961 Sonic Blue Fender Stratocaster (top six) which would not only be used during the recording of Nowhere Man, but as well as during the Sgt. Pepper (BL) sessions. The Sonic made very few public appearances, such as during a sound check in December ‘64 (BR).
One day late in 1964, John Lennon and George Harrison sent their roadie, Mal Evans, out to “get a couple Strats,” and came back from Grimwoods in Kent with two ‘61 models in a rare colour. Although a similar model with a maple fretboard is seen during the Imagine sessions, it is unknown today as to where the original is.
