Rickenbacker 481 1977 White

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $1,900$2,400

The 481 was similar to the Rickenbacker 480 but with different pickups and slanted frets.  Both guitars used a "Cresting Wave" body shape similar to Rickenbacker's 4000-series basses.

White was a rare finish for the 481, and these particular guitars tend to sell for a bit more than their common finish counterparts.

Years of Production:
1973 - 1983
