1930’s Rickenbacher Model 59


Grey sunburst, steel body. In the world of lap steels there is Rickenbacker (they eventually standardized the spelling of the name with a “k” by 1950 or so) and Fender, then everything else. This has the killer pickup that made Rickenbacker a very solid choice for professional musicians. One side of tuners replaced but has original case in good shape. This is as iconic as a lap steel gets, incredible tone and fantastic ’30s looks.
