Horseshoe Pickup

Rickenbacker Ken Roberts Electro Spanish Guitar, 1935

Rickenbacker Ken Roberts Electro Spanish Guitar, 1935

The Ken Roberts model not only has a pickup, the neck is also ‘extended’ to meet the body at the 17th fret, and it has a vibrato tailpiece designed by Doc Kaufman. This exceptionally rare example is in good playing condition. Most people associate the first electric guitars with Leo Fender or the Gibson Les Paul, but the Rickenbacker ‘Frying Pan’ lap steel guitar predated those by almost two decades, appearing in 1931.

SOLD!!! Rickenbacker Electro Model NS Lap Steel, 1948

The Rickenbacker lap steel was possibly the very first successful electric guitar put into larger scale production, but Rickenbacker’s influence goes back to the early National days. Adolph Rickenbacker – then spelled Richenbacher – had a tool and die shop near National, and was contracted to produce metal bodies and resonator cones for National guitars, ukuleles and mandolins.
