This rare 1982 Rickenbacker 381 John Kay Limited Edition is in immaculate condition and has obviously been cherished by it's previous owner. Featuring innovative electronic circuitry for a brilliant range of tonal variety and electronic configurations. The John Kay Limited Edition incorporates elements of the Rickenbacker 381 he used in early Steppenwolf days with additions for active electronics. The instrument features two HB-1's, Rickenbacker's newly designed humbucking pickup, active and passive modes, lead phase switch and a four position rotary switch which offers various combinations of single coil and humbucking pickup configurations. The guitar offers stereo and monaural outputs, and excellent style with the silver pickguard, Jetglo finish and silver nameplate. Only a limited number of these were produced, so a very unique Ricky! Unfortunately there’s no case with this one, but do enquire at time of purchase and we can recommend a suitable case.
