Fender are offering everybody the chance to win an iPad 2 and a free download of the new Guitar Collection: George Harrison app, which takes you on a fascinating digital guided tour of one of the world's most historic guitar collections belonging to one of the world's most famous and beloved guitarists.
With it you can digitally explore George Harrison's many famous guitars, including the 1957 Gretsch Duo Jet from the Cavern days and the cover of 1987's Cloud Nine, the psychedelic-painted "Rocky" Fender Stratocaster (as seen in the "I Am the Walrus" segment of 1967's Magical Mystery Tour film, among many other notable appearances), and the custom rosewood Fender Telecaster he played at the famous 1969 "rooftop" concert. Zoom in on 360-degree views for an unbelievably detailed close-up look at every scratch, ding, dent and modification of the guitars that Harrison used to make his many monumental contributions to music.
The app also gives you the facts about and the story behind each guitar through detailed descriptions, a wealth of images, historical and contemporary video footage, a full list of Beatles and Harrison songs on which each guitar is heard, and even the voice of Harrison himself.
Fender says that it's an incredible virtual experience and a must for Beatles fans, George Harrison fans and guitar fans everywhere.
