Item specifics

Brand:

Rickenbacker

Model:

6000 Bantar

Whether you're a guitar guy or a banjo guy, there isn't anything much sexier than checkerboard binding and crushed pearl inlays. Those with weak hearts should look away now.

This auction is for a rarer-than-rare 1967 Rickenbacker 6000 Bantar electric 5-string banjo in Fireglo finish, serial number GG3362. It is the very same instrument featured on pages 54 and 55 of "Rickenbacker: Pioneer of the Electric Guitar" published by Rittor Music (compare the grain patterns on the back of the body if you don't believe me). Proponents of the Bantar include Bela Fleck and Roger McGuinn, and recorded examples can be heard on Bela Fleck's "Subterfuge." Plays like a banjo, sounds like a vintage Rick. How cool is that?

This example is 100% original with no breaks, repairs, mods, shenanigans or chicanery whatsoever. It has been a case queen for the better part of the last twenty years and has very low hours on it. Other than the usual yellowing of the plastics, metal tarnishing with age and some pickguard discoloration around the controls, this baby is in excellent condition both cosmetically and functionally. And RARE? Did I mention RARE?

I have done my best to supply numerous photographs of this instrument in natural sunlight from all possible angles. Please examine the pictures carefully and ask any questions you may have prior to bidding.

Will ship in the pictured later model Rickenbacker hardshell case fully insured via Japan Post Express Mail Service (EMS). Bidders to pay exact shipping costs; buyers outside the US please contact me for international quotes. Japanese buyers are responsible for the 5% sales tax.

Please take a look at our other auctions and add us to your favorites. Many more rare axes on the horizon!
