The Rickenbacker Guarantee

Postby (T-dub) » Mon Apr 16, 2012 9:15 pm

I posted over on the amp forum about an old Model 59 set we recently acquired, and found this 'hang tag' in the case. It's the Rickenbacker Guarantee for a new neck, among other things, if the original Bakelite one goes south. Not sure why it was with a Model 59 lap steel, though. Thought maybe Rick enthusiasts might enjoy seeing it. Tom

Since no time limit is stated, I wonder if it is still valid? :lol:

--it still exists and

--you can link that tag to the instrument it came with! :lol:
