1968 Rickenbacker 360/12 Burgundyglo RARE Roger McGuinn Signed
This iconic guitar is signed by Roger McGuinn, famous member of The Byrds who popularized this model of guitar. Here is a great article from American Songwriter that discusses McGuinn's use of the Rickenbacker 360-12: https://americansongwriter.com/legendary-guitars-roger-mcguinns-rickenbacker-360-12-370-12/.
The Burgundyglo finish is extremely rare on the 360/12, we have not been able to find another guitar with this finish in our research anywhere on the internet, not even a single photo.
*PLEASE NOTE* Although we believe the signature is genuine we are not an expert on signatures and cannot make any guarantees to its authenticity.
SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER
Case: Original Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: Very good. The guitar has scratching and some dings throughout on the top, back , sides, and headstock. There is a good amount of buckle rash on the back of the guitar as well as a small finish crack near the volute that is stable. The hardware shows a bit of wear/tarnishing to be expected from an instrument from the 1960s.
Finish crack on back of neck base of headstock appears perfectly stable.
Set up low and comfortable to play good intonation everything functions properly (truss rod, saddles, etc).
Clear-coated over the signature on the back. It is NOT a finished crack. Clear coat could be peeled off at the line.
