Pure vintage tone and jaw-dropping looks! This rare 1973 480 Jetglo is well-suited for a variety of styles and is a joy to play and to behold!

The Rickenbacker 480 has a similar body style to the iconic 4000 series basses (think Lemmy). These guitars weren’t as popular as more famous Rickenbackers, such as the 360, but are of definite interest to collectors due to their relative rarity. Unlike most Rickenbackers, the 480 uses a bolt-on neck.
