This Rickenbacker Model 450 is from the private collection of Billy Corgan.

This vintage Rick was used this on a few recordings in the mid-2000s, but nothing notable that we can point to.

This Rickenbacker is pretty clean for its age. There are no major blemishes – only the subtle surface scratches and tiny nicks you'd expect on a guitar this age, and only a few at that. One of the original tuning pegs has been replaced (the D string) and does not match the others. The pickguard has been replaced as well. The neck pickup was rewound at some point and sounds fantastic.

This guitar sounds great. Low noise, very clear and open pickups. All switches and pots work as they should. The frets are a bit worn but aren't an urgent issue yet.

This guitar will ship in its original hardshell case with the original pickguard included.
