GET THAT BEATLES SOUND, Play Rickenbacker.
Here we have a beatiful example of Rickenbackercraftsmanship. A real 1976, Serial # PI C125, Which is September of 1976.Right before. This guitar is in very good condition for being over 30 years old, and has been fully restored to its original beauty. The neck is straight with minimal fret wear, absolutely no rust, and only minor dings and wear marks,which is the standard among 30 year old plus guitars. Overall, no majorstructural flaws, although, at some time in her life, it looks like another pickgaurd was placed on her, and you can still see some small holes that were filled in just around the edge. It is hard to see from a few feet away, and can be color matched to disapear altogether. The hardware, screws, pick ups, wiring harness, knobs and bridge are all Brand New old stock, and I just put on a new set of strings as well. Although, I snaped the 2nd string while installing, and the only other one I had laying around had a little rust on it. Everything works, and sound great. I tried to use all Officail Rickenbacker parts on this where feasible, exept for the Black Truss cover, which is a very nice reproduction. Also, other strap buttons were added, they look like the kind on my husbands 1978 4001, but original holes are still there if you want to put on original ones. The original white truss cover is on auction and ends exactly 15 minute after this one, so check out my other auctions, as well as my husbands Rickenbacker auctions ''iamaknifeguy''. I also have a fully adjustableBridge with the mounting screws that came with the guitar. The tailpiece already has the hardwareand holes, so you can easily change between the non-adjustable floatingbridge, or the fully adjustable bridges. I will throw those in with the deal for FREE as well.After market tunners were installer, but I put some Official Ric vintage style Kluson tunners with the metal heads which is period correct. Please see...
