     Rickenbacker Pete Townshend signature guitar, model 1998-PT. This guitar is #13 of the series.

    I am the second owner of this guitar. I have played it at home and in the studio on recordings, but I've never gigged with it. There are a couple of tiny body checks which were put there by the original owner, but overall this guitar is in excellent condition.

    The neck feels great and plays like a dream. It's a very clean guitar that is all original.

    When I bought this guitar the original case was badly damaged. I didn't feel the guitar was well protected in the broken down original case, so I replaced it with a Rickenbacker silver tolex case that you'll find on most of their signature model guitars.
