Lennon's 325/12 before it was sent to him!

Postby (jeff) » Fri Apr 14, 2017 5:27 pm

Here's an interesting photo I stumbled upon featuring Francis Hall's wife Catherine and a Rickenbacker rep examining John Lennon's 325/12 prior to being shipped to him! Don't know if this has been posted before. I thought is was worth sharing.

Looks like someone was fiddling with the knobs. I wonder if John changed the settings or left it factory set?
