Rickenbacker® Model Combo 450

Model Combo 450 (1957)

The first Combo 450, introduced in 1957, was a two pickup version of the Combo 400. Available in the same colors as the 400. The company maintained several variations of the 450 over the years before it was deleted from the guitar line in 1984. The 1957 Combo 450 had a Tulip shaped body with a neck-through-body construction. Two long bolts and glue connected the outside section of the body to the center neck/body section.
