if you have the opportunity to choose a Beatle memorabilia.. which one would you like to have? To give you guys more chance, you can choose

 

a. an instrument.

b. something else.

 

a. George's "Lucy"'s guitar. (I don't know much about guitars.. it seem a good choice)

b. Julian Lennon's Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds painting. Second it would be John's Mr. Kite's poster.

I'd like to be in a room with all Beatles memorabilia so I could roll around naked in it…oops – wrong forum.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

The possibilities are endless but if I had to choose just one item, I would love to have an original pressing of the Please Please Me album autographed by all including george-martin.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I choose Paul's psychedelic Rickenbaker bass.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I'm curious as to which forum is RIGHT for that statement… a-hard-days-night-paul-7 Hahaha!

 

a. For an instrument, I'd probably want George's strat with the designs on the pickguard. It's so pretty! a-hard-days-night-george-9

b. Letters. Either the original letter that George wrote to a friend back in Liverpool telling her how to wash his car (and trash Paul's), or the letter John wrote to Stu Sutcliffe in 1961 with the poem that says:

I can't remember anything

without a sadness

So deep that it hardly

becomes known to me

I'd also be glad to have one of those little photos of Mike and Paul when they were young'ns! They are so cute!

I'd probably frame them. a-hard-days-night-john-5

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Maybe one of John's Daily Howl entries, or perhaps a Sgt. Pepper jacket!
And, who can forget Paul's lovely sweater-vest; that looks warm come winter time:

Tongue, lose thy light. Moon, take thy flight… see ya, George!

Probably John's first guitar. You know, the one "guaranteed not to split." 

On a semi-related note, my mother made a blue Sgt. Pepper suit for my brother. He wore it for Halloween and the Paul concert. Every time we play anything off Sgt. Pepper on Rock Band, he insists on wearing it. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

The hole in Ringo's pocket.

The White Album that has the original 1st serial number.

All the tapes in the vault, and 10 years of vacation.

Yes! Clothes! How could I forget clothes?!

MMM, I can't believe I didn't spot him at the concert! I was looking for some costumed people, but didn't find any. a-hard-days-night-ringo-2 Is your brother "Polythene Dan", the newest BB member?

I have two brothers: "JoJo" and "Polythene Dan." "JoJo" has the Sgt. Pepper suit. He's six, so maybe that's why you didn't see him.

I think #9 would be worth more (to me anyways)

In Mexico's concert I saw a little kid wearing a blue Sgt. Pepper's vest. I wanted to get George for this Halloween but I might go for Paul's.

 

Although a friend is truly tempting me in dressing as The Prisoner's Number 2. We're going to have badges done and all. And a huge white balloon LOL!!

It was. There was some lady behind my mom who said, "Look at that kid in the Pepper suit! How cute!" MMM said, "Mom? There's someone complimenting you!" Then our mom turned around and said, "Oh, thanks!"
EDIT: The best memorabilia would be those cards they used in "A Hard Day's Night" during "I Should Have Known Better." Then I could play Mao with them. 
I wouldn't be caught dead in them. They're dead grotty.

I've had a long think about this. So much to choose from! I suppose Abbey Road Studios doesn't count as memorabilia, so I'll gladly settle for this:

I think there were three different violin basses that McCartney used during the 60s, one of which he still uses. One was retired in around 64 as it was falling apart, and the other is with a private owner. Any of them would do – I'm not fussy.

What about those masters? You know, the original tapes? THAT would probably be the Holy Grail.
