Rickenbacker bass serial number dating

Exceptionally fine conditions for a 40 year-old instrument, really "near mint".

The original circuitry shows potentiometers date February '56, paper capacitor, intact solder-joints, three way CRL selector switch and Switchcraft jack-socket.

The fingerboard shows some wear, but the frets are still in decent condition with lots of room for bending and a nice and easy action.

Figured-ash body with brown sunburst finish and maple neck with rosewood fingerboard (and skunk-stripe on the back). No other date is visible, neither on the neck base (the stamp has faded and can't be read anymore) nor on the potentiometers (the date is hidden by the solder-joints).

This Strat has all-original hardware and circuitry features, with three-bolts neckplate, tilt-neck adjustment, "F" tuners, truss-rod "bullet" on the front of the headstock, etc.

Custom color's rarity, light weight and sound make of this guitar a winner.

Excellent action, smooth and easy maple fretboard with frets in good condition.

Very nice look, the body has a beautiful finish and wood-grain.
