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.

Holy *%*$&!!! Here’s an all original 1967 Fender Maple-Cap Telecaster! It’s super light and resonant at 6.7 lbs and has one of those amazing 60s Fender necks that is not too big or too small. It’s playing pretty good now but after a set-up and some new strings it’s going to be a superstar! We’ll have a full photo set up on our site in a few hours. We’d love to keep it in our in-house collection but this one is for sale for some lucky Tele-hound to pounce on. :)


1962 Epiphone Crestwood Custom White

There’s a lot to be said for the oft over-looked Epiphones of the late 50s and early 60s. They share many characteristics with their Gibson cousins, and sometimes totally outshine and totally out-cool them! Case in point: the Crestwood Custom! Thin asymmetrical body, super rounded edges, a tricked-out rosewood emblazoned vibrato, Mini Humbuckers, oval fingerboard inlays, and the two-toned pickguard all add up to one might purdy package. Nice and roomy 1-11/16" wide necks too. xoxoxo

We’re still trying to get over Prince breaking one of these on a TV appearance last year. Condolences to “Captain” Kirk Douglas of the Roots, hope you got that baby up and running again.
