Item specifics

Seller notes: Guitar is very rare in this condition. Being over 75 years old it has it's original case in not very good condition (lock works & all three latch's work Lining not very nice)The neck is straight (very rare). Original tuners pickup, chrome panels and horse shoe pickup. Pots have been changed to later ones and some of the screws. Has minor fret ware on the bakelight neck. Nice hard to come by first solid body guitar.
Brand: Rickenbacker Body Type: Solid
Model: Electro Spanish Model B Series: Electro
Hello and this sale is for a very rare and museum quality 1938-1939 Rickenbacker Electro Spanish Model B Solid Body guitar. This series is known as the first solid body electric guitar. The first Electro Spanish came out in late 1935 with exactly the same body and pickup but with only a volume control but know tone control. The guitar is very rare as it has a very straight neck as most would bow because of no truss rod. The guitar has minor fret ware (not played very much). The guitar has a few scratches and a scuff here and there but are hard to see. This one must have lived most of it's life in the case. It will come with what looks like the original case. (It's in fair shape but has seen better days). I had the guitar appraised by Gruhn Guitars in Nashville and there quote ($3500) will be included with the purchase of the instrument. A new set of strings will be in the case. The guitar was tested and sounds like it should and everything works. The strings were removed for the photos! Please ask all questions before you bid. Thanks and good luck!
