1950s No. 98 Grover Sta-Tite Keywind set Rickenbacker
Includes COA from Rickenbacker CEO John Hall
When, in the late 1990s, Rickenbacker was developing its model 325c58 (a definitive replica of John Lennon’s Rickenbacker 325 guitar), this NOS set of original ‘50s Grover tuning machines was installed on the 325c58 prototype, until the current reissue “Ric-Tite” machines were manufactured.
This prototype was then shown at various trade shows. Once the new keywinds were acquired, this old-stock set from the prototype was removed, put back in its original packaging and stored away, while a reissue set was installed on the guitar.
This keywind set – which is the same vintage and style as found on Lennon’s first 325 – is now available for auction, complete with authentication from Rickenbacker CEO John Hall, handwritten on the reverse of his business card (see photo).
This set is functional and has no noticeable blems. No other mounting hardware is included.
This item is NOS (''new old stock'') and has not been in circulation. However, it is sold as-is, no returns. Postage is calculated below, depending on chosen service and distance.
Feel free to write with questions, thanks, and good luck.
