This very rare and sought after Awesome pre owned Rickenbacker 660 was part of a small run of guitars made for Rickenbackers 75th anniversary. This particular version plays and sounds great, however there are a number of finish issues, mainly being that the finish never cured properly and is still slightly tacky to the touch. This has caused some fingerprints to be pressed into the finish, mainly on the neck, and also parts of the finish to flake a little, mainly around the headstock where it would have been on a stand or wall hanger. There is also some sections of binding that have shifted, and while still very much attached to the guitar, they have left a small gap. Most notably to the treble side of the neck join. There are also some swirl marks and other dings and scratches in places. The frets also have some oxidisation that has been cleaned up as well as possible without effecting the fretboard lacquer,
Its a really lovely guitar but for the above stated reasons we would prefer the buyer to come into to see us in the shop and have a look at the guitar up close and personal. It does come with the Rickenbacker hardcase and it really is a very cool guitar! Let us know if you are interested!
