A gorgeous replica of John Lennon’s ’63 325. This was the model Rickenbacker gave to John when he “retired” his road-weary ’58 325. Featuring a short scale with three “toaster top” single coils & Accent vibrato, this gorgeous reissue features all the style & charm of the ’60s original. A really lovely piece that actually plays rather well & sounds wonderful. Professionally set up by us so it’s ready for action straight out of the case!
