The very next day, at EMI Abbey Road Studio Two London, Lennon used his Gibson J-160E to record the Beatles' first single "Love Me Do." It was released on October 5th, 1962, in the UK on Parlophone Records. This was the Beatles' first 45, launching the Fab Four onto the British charts, and it was the sound of the Gibson J-160E that helped to get them there.
For the remainder of 1962 and throughout 1963, John Lennon continued to use his Gibson J-160E guitar exclusively for further Beatles recordings, television appearances and live performances. Unfortunately, in the early part of December 1963, Lennon's J-160E was stolen and was never recovered. Without his personal Gibson "jumbo," John would often use George Harrison's J-160E. It was George's J-160E that John used in the film "A Hard Day's Night."
