1965 Rickenbacker 450/12 - Fireglo
1965 Rickenbacker 450/12 - Fireglo incl. orig. hardshell case
Clean 1965 Rickenbacker 450-12 in Fireglo finish. The guitar is all original and in excellent condition for its age. The 450 model has been the first production 12-String electric guitar and although it has a small body and very comfortable size, the scale is a full 630mm (Les Paul -Scale!). The weight is only ca. 3,4 Kg and the medium sized C-shaped neck is very comfortable to play. The original frets are still in great shape, the sound is excellent with the typical clean ring, only a Rickenbacker with its "toaster" Pickups can produce. One of the most underrated 12-string electric guitars and very affordable 53(!) year old vintage guitar! Including original silver Rickenbacker hardshellcase.
