Video: Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace and Her Rickenbacker Collection

Laura Jane Grace, who fronts the well-known punk band Against Me!, became a Rickenbacker-wielding legend for one reason, specifically: Rickenbackers look cool. "A Rickenbacker—they're just the meanest looking guitars."

In the video above, she takes us through her love for the eye-catching instrument—from the moment she saw Tom Petty holding one on the cover of her first CD, to the moment she could finally afford one at 22-23 years old, and beyond.

Her collection is filled with fine specimens, like the very first Rickenbacker she owned—a 330, now banana-yellow—that she traded a bandmate for, a 360 you can hear on tons of Against Me! records, and a collection of oddballs like the 620 and Rickenbacker Colorado.
