Recently acquired from the original family, featuring an all metal body/neck in a greyburst finish & fitted with a single "horseshoe" pickup. Plays & sounds terrific & would make an excellent addition to any Rickenbacker aficionado's collection.

Cosmetic Condition: Really great shape for its age & quite clean actually - various tiny nicks & dings along with mild surface scratches.

Neck/Body: Hollow metal neck/body in greyburst finish. 3-on-a-side strip tuners with unoriginal white buttons (the original bakelite buttons deteriorated). 2" nut width; 22 1/2" scale length. Lap steel weighs 7 lbs 1 oz.

Electronics: Single coil "horseshoe" pickup with master volume & tone controls. All electronics are in good working condition.

Case: Original hardshell case included.
