1974 Rickenbacker 4080 Double Neck Bass and Guitar

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


1974 Rickenbacker 4080 Double Neck! This is an incredible, beautiful, and rare instrument. 4-string bass on top, 6-string guitar on bottom. 1974 was the first year of production for these guitars, which makes this guitar all the more valuable. Whether you're a collector of beautiful instruments, ever wanted to go full-on Geddy Lee, or just know how freaking cool it is to play a doubleneck, this is the guitar for you!

Purchased a few years ago from the original owner, who bought it in New York back in the 70s and toured with it a fair amount. Some wear on the back and sides (see pictures), plus some dings, and a drilled hole for a strap lock but nothing that takes away from its beauty. For being more than 40 years old and gotten its use out on the road, it’s in excellent condition.

The original owner had the black cellulose pickguards and truss rod covers replaced with custom bubinga rosewood equivalents that look absolutely incredible in my opinion. The neck pickup of the 6-string neck was replaced with a humbucker with custom wood top, adding to the color scheme. He also had the electronics reworked so that signals from the necks can be sent to separate amps (see wiring diagram).

All original hardware is included (see pictures): pickguards, truss rod covers, pickup, knobs, bridgecover, and screws.

This guitar is an absolute joy to play. Selling it because it just doesn’t get enough attention. Wish I was touring in a band so I could use this thing to its full potential, but alas. Please give her a nice home and lots of love!

Contact me for more info on this incredible instrument. I'm accepting offers. Would prefer to ship within the continental U.S., but contact me and we can discuss shipping.
