This rare Rickenbacker chimes and rings out in a way that only these guitars can, the vibrato system, although primitive, holds its tuning better than many other units including some modern examples. While this is a player grade guitar, with evidence of wear in the form of buckle rash on the body’s reverse, overall condition is good for its age and when you play it, you can feel the history.
