Rickenbacker / 325 JL John Lennon LTD / 1992 / Black / Guitar For Sale
This guitar came from a Beatles memorabilia collector and having been bought in 1990 was never played yet perfectly stored meaning it’s as if this guitar stepped into a time capsule and arrived here at Art of Guitar 30 years later in absolutely perfect condition.
First a little history to this incredibly collectible and valuable piece - In 1990 Rickenbacker International Corporation received the permission from the Lennon estate to reissue a special replica of John's 1963 Model 325 Rickenbacker. Of the 3 versions made available this is THE LENNON - identical in every way down to the 325JL 3/4 neck, which John used up through the movie, "Help!".
The Company manufactured only 2,000 instruments from this series and only 325 of this actual perfect rendition of the Lennon classic. The models were formally introduced at the 1990 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim and pricing was announced at the Show. Each guitar was accompanied by an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity and Origin. This is included with the guitar.
The John Lennon Limited Edition, Model 325JL is entirely handmade in America from solid Eastern Rock Maple with a rosewood fingerboard on a three quarter scale neck complimented with three vintage Rickenbacker pickups. The instrument comes standard with vintage vibrato. This series offered features which made it unique within the Rickenbacker product line, including some of the original tooling to ensure faithful recreation of the headstock, pickguard and nameplate.
