1961 RICKENBACKER 365 W/OHSC-
- One of 5 mapleglo 365s made in 1961.
This model sports the Capri-style horns and was made before
the company added the blender knob. This is a one owner
guitar. All original except for the pickup selector switch
(original one is included) which the original owner had
changed out and the accent vibrato arm which is a factory
replacement. The neck is straight and all electronics are
in good working order. Minor fretwear. No belt buckle rash
(owner always covered buckle). The only issue is a tiny
ding on the back the neck which can't even be felt. The
owner purchased a Rick-O-Sound box in the early sixies and
that is included. The guitar could be considered near-mint
which is a testiment to the care this owner took of his
instrument. Even more amazing considering he used it on
Dick Clark's Cavalcade Of Stars in the early 60's backing
up the likes of Brian Hyland, Chubby Checker, Gary US Bonds
and more. Original case has one 2 inch tear on the top.
No other issues with the case. Please call or email for
more information or detailed photos.
Serial #: AD 364, April 1961
