❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4001FL Fretless Maple Glo 1978

❌SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 4001FL Fretless Maple Glo 1978

Only available as a special order during the 1960s and based closely on the base 4001  model, the Rickenbacker 4001FL was offered from 1968 until the 4001 was discontinued in 1989. The key differences between the 4001 and the Rickenbacker 4001FL are in the fingerboard and binding. Naturally, the bound Padouk fingerboard is fretless, but is not a modified fretted board. Some builders will use a fretted board, filling the slots with veneer, giving visible markings an an aid to intonation.

❌SOLD❌ National Style 97 Squareneck Tricone Surfer Girl Resophonic, 1938

❌SOLD❌  National Style 97 Squareneck Tricone Surfer Girl Resophonic, 1938

Here is a rarity – a National Style 97 Square neck Tricone with the Surfer Girl motif on a sandblasted and enameled nickel plated brass body. These were built in small numbers from 1936 to 1940. By 1941, the materiel demands for the burgeoning war brought production of resophonic guitars to a halt. The ‘B’ prefix in the serial of this guitar is said to first appear in 1938. This National Style 97 likely dates to 1938. This rare model uses a 12-fret square neck on nickel plated brass body, treated with sandblasting to create various scenes, mostly based on Hawaiian imagery. On this guitar, the scene is of woman surfing with a palm tree in the mid field and volcano in the distance.
