Rickenbacker Model 325C58 Rickenbacker Model 325C58  

A shot of the back, showing the 'book matched' wood.

This is the body of the Alderglo 325C58 serial #0233148. It's been lightly modified with a set of 50's Grover open back tuners, a 50's Rickenbacker Aluminum bridge plate, 50's vintage pickguard screws & a 50's butterscotch switch tip. The wood pattern on this guitar is just incredible & I haven't seen another 'C' with the 'streaking' in the wood like this one.

         Rickenbacker 320/12V63 (1986)

 

 

 

This is a very rare, one of only 22 made, 1986 320/12V63, serial #ZE-1413. There were, according to Toshio Sogabi, 22 of these made by his order for the Japanese market. 15 of these were shipped to Japan and 7 remained here in the USA. This is one of the 7. Larry Wassgren was the owner of serial #ZE-1414 and George Mizer is the owner of serial # ZE-1415.

This 320/12V63 differs from the 1999 325/12V63 in the following ways:

Rounded heel
rear strap button at the bottom of the plate, not in the center
thin 60's type finish
Light colored fretboard
correct 'slot head' screws in the pickup corners and the headstock logo
Schaller 'Deluxe' tuners with hex head tuner bushings w/ nylon washer under the bushing


This guitar has a 1990's 12 saddle bridge. The original vintage style bridge is in the case.
