'73 RICKENBACKER  480 Burgundy GLO , EX + code VA822

Very comfortable guitar, straigh neck, frets are in excellent condition, the truss rods working well. All original! Comes with hard case.

RICKENBACKER made the 480 between 1973 and 1984. All the 480 Series models (the 480, 481 and 483) had cresting wave style bodies like the famous 4000 series basses. Despite its cool looking body shape the 480 never caught on in the same way as the 4000 series bass models but are collectible due to their relative scarcity. Unlike most Rickenbackers the 480 model has a bolt-on neck and a 25 inch scale length. The 480 was available in the full range of Rickenbacker finishes

divenuta famosa per essere la "sorella" del famoso basso utilizzato spesso da Paul McCartney dei Beatles il Rickenbacker 4001, difatti possiede la stessa identica forma.
Chitarra elettrica Solid Body con 24 tasti dalle originali fattezze (massiccio ponte-blocca-corde in fusione, pickup 'horse-shoe' nelle versioni vintage..) con dot bianco panna come segnatasti, corpo contoured e pick-up high gain. Patti Smith, Sergio Pizzorno from Kasabian (versione 481), Dr. Wheels from Rambling Wheels, Alex Zeella e Matt Zeella From The Capozeella. Utilizzata in genere da bands o artisti particolari e generi musicali di nicchia quali Indie rock o elettro rock.
