Up for sale is this vintage circa late 1940's Rickenbacker Model B lap steel guitar.

This is a very nice example of a Model B. It was played and shows wear from it, but it looks to have been well taken care of. The biggest issues that we found are that a few of the dot inlays are missing and one screw is missing on one of the metal body plates. Other than that, everything looks to be original. The body plates do show pitting and one of them (where your hand would rest) does show some rust. One tuning key is bent (pictured), but functions fine.

This instrument has just been cleaned up and restrung by our tech. He also sprayed out the electronics and tightened the input jack. The original pickup, volume, and tone controls all work exactly as they should and it's a great sounding instrument that is also a joy to play.

The original hardshell case is included. It is in fair condition for its age, but the seams around the edges have been reglued, the original handle is partially missing, and it shows fairly heavy wear from many years of protecting the instruments. It is sturdy, however, and all of the hinges and latches are functional.

Overall, a wonderful example of a "Rickenbacher" Model B steel guitar. These are sought-after for a reason and this one is no exception. Don't miss out!
