I remember that one time George Harrison was using that red BC Rich Warlock.

I think Musicians Friend sells them for like $150.

Dude, learn to play first. I see no point in spending that much money on guitars and amps when you actually have been playing for less than a year.

You won't sound like The Beatles unless you can play the guitar well.

You do have the gear but what you don't have is the technique for early Beatles tone. So focus on practicing, not buying new guitars. Guitars don't make that much difference to the tone - humbuckers sound like humbuckers, single coils sound like single coils and your Vox amp sounds like a Vox amp. Also, you won't nail the tone because it's recorded tone and recorded tone doesn't sound the same as real life tone.

And +1 to the BC Rich suggestion.

Does rosewood have a certain affect on tone? Or is it just for aesthetics?

It has an affect on tone for sure. I like to think of it as a mellow Mahogany.

how bout a fender Stratocaster with mid 60s pickups. can be found all over 65-66 period beatles albums but not used live. both john and goerge used them. gorge repained his all psychedelic.

I guess i should ask which of their lead tones you like best?

A gretsch will cover the early stuff pretty well, up until around the rubber soul/revolver era. Then he seemed to start experimenting with different guitar tones a bit more. I think a strat would probably do very well at covering most of George's tones throughout the beatles' career though.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
