1938 (knobs on both sides) Rickenbacher Silver Hawaiian Lap Steel Guitar also known as Model 100 with OHSC Time Capsule Condition This lap steel guitar is in most excellent condition. It is quite rare to find a guitar of this vintage with such little wear or deterioration. There is virtually no pitting on the chrome. It is in collectors condition. This vintage classic sports the much sought after 1 1/2" Horseshoe Magnet pickup. The output is strong and has excellent tonal range. The sustain is remarkable. This guitar can scream and growl or carry a clean hawaiian sound as well as the twang identified with country sound. Jerry Byrd played a sister guitar. And I’ve listened to Slide players on other Ricks with the same electronics. This guitar can also really wail. If you want to know what this guitar can sound like, listen to Jackson Browne’s, Running on Empty album. This is the set-up that David Lindley used on that album. Not the same guitar, mind you, but a sister guitar that has the same electronics. These pickups are very hot; and understandably, in great demand. . The photos are high resolution & can be enlarged. Please refer to them. They should help to understand that this guitar is in such excellent condition. The original hard shell case is also in very good condition. Very plush. It even has the original key. Rickenbacher lap steels were one of the first electric guitars, introduced in 1932. They are quite collectible as well as producing some of the best sounds.Serial # D1066 Enjoy!
