Welcome, you are looking at a great piece.
This is the 2000 Rickenbacker USA 325v59 Mapleglo Electric Guitar.
21" scale. 1.63" nut width. 7 lbs 1 oz.
.82"-.93" 1st to 12th fret neck depth.
The Rickenbacker 325v59 is based on John Lennon's personal 325 Rickenbacker.
This 325 starts off with a beautiful semi-hollow maple body- absolutely gorgeous back, see pics.
The semi-hollow design, combined with the maple, results in a balanced natural tone- acoustic warmth and maple articulation.
Grabbing up that natural tone are a trio of Toaster Top single coil pickups.
The 3-way switch provides bridge/all on/middle-neck options.
These pickups, combined with the 3/4 size, provide those incredible jangly bridge and warm neck cleans- those Beatles sounds can be easily obtained using this 325 as a starting point.
When overdriven, these pickups open up with sweet mids and the neck/middle pickups fatten up beautifully.
A true classic tone machine.
The neck here has an oval C profile, with a 10" fretboard radius for comfortable chording and easy bends.
The icing on the cake is the Bigsby tremolo- offering those classic smooth pitch manipulations.
The look here is gorgeous- Mapleglo finish showing off the graining/figured back, gold guard, Ric Deluxe machines, and chrome hardware.
This Rickenbacker is in good overall condition- there are dings and small marks (pics) and missing the second level of the pickguard.
The frets here are clean- set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This auction includes the original hardshell case in pics.
This is your chance to get your hands on a work of art from Rickenbacker- the 325v59 Mapleglo.
Don't pass this by.
