Be sure and check out the October 2005 issue of Rolling Stone! Sir Paul McCartney graces the cover with his original 1964 Epiphone Texan, the same guitar used during his memorable performance of "Yesterday" on the Ed Sullivan show on August 14, 1965. The guitar, serial number 194959, was officially a model FT-79N (N for natural finish), that had left the Gibson factory on May 23, 1964. McCartney bought it in New York in 1965. List price at the time was $175, and the case was extra.
