This guitar is a Model 1996 sold by Rose-Morris, a major importer of Rickenbackers to England throughout the '60s. The three original "Toaster" pickups provide all of the jangle that Rics are known for, and the tremolo lets you get everything from surf vibrato to rockabilly warble. This instrument is in overall very good vintage condition with surface wear and dings throughout, as well as some buckle rash on the back. The knobs on this guitar appear to have been changed from the originals. The instrument is currently strung up with flatwound strings, however can be changed out to whatever your preference of string is!
