John Lennon played 325s and their assorted variants during the 1960s (Including a 12-string made to match his second 325). These instruments gained prominence due to John Lennon's use of a 325 during the early years of The Beatles. John Lennon's 1958 model was among the very first batch made and has the pre-production feature of a solid top, i.e., no sound hole. Nicknamed "[Hamburg](http://www.yellow-sub.fr/sites/default/files/image/beatles/guitares-instruments-john-lennon/artistlennon.jpg)", this guitar was modified with Bigsby vibrato and nonstandard control knobs. Lennon used this guitar during their first public appearance of the Ed Sullivan Show.more
