  It is obvious that John & George were having a laugh 
  imitating The Shadows, whose "Apache" was then a top 
  selling hit. That was the birth of this instrumental. 
  According to Sheridan, Lennon used his Gibson ES-175
  through a Fender amp to record it. Some people said 
  that George could have used John's '58 Rickenbacker, 
  but hearing the track, it seems more likely that it 
  was the high action of his Futurama which was giving 
  him a little trouble, mostly while trying to play the 
  bridges. 
  I think it is not so obvious, however, that George used 
  John's Rickenbacker's tremolo bar or his Futurama's one 
  in a more than sparse way, let's say the first bending 
  of the four from the opening and recurrent solo guitar 
  phrase, at most. The other three bendings are too close 
  and he should have had to pluck the string as he lifted 
  the vibrato arm in a single movement. (?!) I also think 
  that a whole tone-up must have been hard to perform, 
  though Bigsby assured their tremolo arm could sharpen 
  or flatten a tone as much as a semitone (the semitone 
  downwards bending was the most usual at that time).
 


  Although there are two guitars in this INTRO, which 
  we can find two more times along the track, as an
  Interlude, I think it is pretty easy playing it as if 
  there was just one. 
  The parenthetical notes are not actually played, but 
  it is very easy keeping the fingering and they fit 
  perfectly.
