1996 Rickenbacker 381/12 V69 12-String Electric Guitar Natural
SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR TECH TEAM
Case Details: Original Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent condition. There is a bit of scratching on the pickups as well as a small ding on the lower back of the guitar. Some minor fretwear.
Tech Notes: Guitar, Hardware and Electronics were cleaned/tested and are functioning appropriately. Fretboard cleaned and frets polished. You will notice some fret wear from open chords on frets 1-3 but it doesn't have an impact on the playability of the instrument. There is a small lift at the end of the neck (not uncommon for these Rickenbacker's) which causes a small amount of note choking/buzz on the E/A/D strings past fret 15. Doesn't have much of an impact on the overall playability of the instrument, unless you're playing extensive solos high up the neck, which usually isn't the case with these guitars. Setup with minimal neck relief and medium action to help compensate for the light lift at the end of the fretboard. Both Truss rods are functioning correctly.
Mods or Repairs: None Evident

Neck Thickness: 1st - 0.88" / 12th - 0.91"
