Vintage 1974 Rickenbacker 480 Electric Guitar In Mapleglo

The fabulous curves of Rickenbacker’s 4000 series basses… but for guitarists! Yep, the Rickenbacker 480 is a unique beast and was only offered for a few years (73-84) and made in limited numbers. There were two other versions also offered: the Rickenbacker 481 which featured slanted frets and the super rare Rickenbacker 483 which was a three pickup version. The 480 came was available at different times with humbuckers but this one has single coils for a more traditional Ric sound. This one is an earlier piece from 1974 and looks incredible in this Mapleglo finish. This guitar is currently available for purchase at Rock N Roll Vintage in Chicago. We ship world-wide.
