    Description

    Beatles Related - John Lennon Limited Edition Rickenbacker Guitar. A John Lennon-themed Rickenbacker guitar, #1,536 in a limited edition 2,000 designed by Greg Rich. Considered by many to be the creator of "art guitars," Rich was the head of Gibson's Custom Shop from 1987 to 1993. Rickenbacker guitars became permanently intertwined with the sound and look of the Beatles, primarily through Lennon's preference for the brand, primarily the 325 model. This limited edition re-issue is decorated with images of Lennon and of characters from the Beatles' cult classic movie Yellow Submarine. It is accompanied by two pickguards -- a clear one that allows art on the body to be seen underneath, and a white one with a Lennon logo printed on it -- as well as a hard carrying case. The guitar is in Excellent condition.
