Made for only a brief period, from 1988 until 1990, this ultra cool Susanna Hoffs Limited Edition model is number 28 in a production run of 250. It features a regular scale length neck on a John Lennon-style body with checkered binding. Two “toaster top” single coils along with Rickenbacker’s proprietary humbucker in the bridge provide a dynamic array of tones. Original COA included along with other paperwork & original hardshell case. This rare model is very hard to come by & would make an excellent additon to any Rickenbacker afficionado’s collection. Professionally set up & ready to play straight out of the case.
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent condition for its age & very clean for the most part. There’s some mild weather checking & a tiny nick in the finish near the input jack, but overall the guitar is in great shape & really wasn’t played.
