A WW II era Rickenbacker Electro Lap Steel in Panda (Black and White) finish.
These Electro Lap Steels are nearly impossible to date to a specific year, but this guitar has features consistent with wartime production. Note the T headstock overlay stating “Rickenbacher” rather than “Rickenbacker.” This guitar also has the preferred wider pickup (1 1/2″), tone and volume knobs, patent number imprinted on bridge, and frets outlined in white. Please call for more details or for an in-hand description.
