Very sweet 1940
(pre-war/wartime) Rickenbacher B6 w/ heavy duty Deluxe 34 stand (**Stand will not be sold separately**). Guitar plays
and sounds absolutely fantastic. Horseshoe was just re-magnetized and pick-up
height set for maximum output and tone.
This guitar has the rare 1.5″ horseshoe magnet that produces that famous
Rick tone. This pre-war/wartime lap steel can produce sounds from Sol Hoopii to David Lindley, Jerry Byrd to Larkin Poe. And it looks fantastic!
Note: The guitar’s neck was cracked at some point, but was not repaired properly, so I
just had it professionally repaired, though there is a slight gap between the
neck and body (maybe 1/16″), tho the shop reports that the natural
harmonics at the 5th, 7th, and 12th frets ring true, so the slight sway in the neck the gap
causes isn’t an issue. Other small nicks and hairline cracks (see pictures). Guitar is all original, except for tuners, and replacement flying saucer knobs.
Comes with original hardshell case in a bit rough, but functional shape (see pics).
Comes with a Deluxe 34 stand in like new condition w/ heavy waterproof canvas
Priced to sell! And I pack and ship professionally.
