Rickenbacher Electro Model B Pre-War (1937-1940)
Vintage 6 string Rickenbacher Electro Model B in very good shape for its age. We've dated this steel to between 1937-1940. In 1937 they started putting a US patent on the metallic parts which can be seen on the ears on each side of the pickup. The logo is also spelled Rickenbacher with an H indicating it is pre 1940, as well as an input jack that faces the player which was switched to the other side in 1940. Truly a fantastic steel, the original pickup sounds amazing and it is all original minus a missing screw on one of the metallic plates. Sold with a hardshell case.
