John Lennon's Beatle-Backer
This diminutive, yet elegant Rickenbacker was a favorite of John Lennon for it's light-weight, beautiful styling and wide range of tones thanks to the three toaster -top pickups.
This was the era of pointy boots, jangling guitars, pitch-perfect harmonies and girls who screamed so loud you thought their pretty little heads might just explode! The Fab Four were at the height of a cultural revolution cresting the second wave of Rock n' Roll that rolled Beethoven right over. The mop-top lads from Liverpool relied on Rickenbacker and Vox for years and exploited every nuance of the soundscapes therein looking stylish on stage in the process.
Without a doubt one of our most illustrious endorsers, John Lennon and his Rose Morris sponsored Rickenbacker model 1996 might just be the most incredible page in our history book.
