1988 Rickenbacker 381V69 Jetglo

$ 3649.00

Up for sale is a 1988 Rickenbacker 381v69 in its original Jetglo finish. Dual toaster pickups, Ric-o-sound inputs, “sharkfin” inlays, double checkerboard bound body w/ hand-carved arch top and back. Pots all date to 1987 and overall entirely original less an additional strap button hole added on the treble side of the body. This example shows some honest play wear, dings, dents, and scratches but is free of any breaks or repairs. There is some fret-wear primarily on the first 5 frets, but nothing that hinders the playability of this beautiful instrument. Pro setup in-house and comes complete with its original hardshell case.

Derived from a design dating back to 1957, this guitar is memorable for its hand-carved arch top and back. Employing only premium ‘charactered’ Maple, model 381V69 has a full bound body with ‘checked’ binding and extreme double cutaways, along with a bound crescent sound hole to complete this exquisite guitar.
