Description 

Rare Vintage Black 1938 Rickenbacher Lap Steel Guitar Model 59 Serial E3368 When introduced in late ‘37, the Model 59 had an ivory or black crinkled finish, with ivory vastly predominating. In 1939, Rickenbacher went to a shaded grey finish for their 59's. So the black was only produced for a little over a year. This particular guitar is a transitional model. It has characteristics of ‘38, such as the color. But, all of the other ‘38s (we know of) had the control knobs on opposite sides. They knobs were moved to the same side in ‘39. Which, uniquely, gives this some characteristics of each year. It is the only black model 59 we know of that has both knobs on the audience side. Not only is this lap steel unique, it is in near mint condition. Check the photos. They are high resolution & can be enlarged to show detail. The case is original and in decent shape.
