Here is a used 1989 Rickenbacker 325V59 vintage series semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This incredibly rare example, serial number L2 5703, features a factory Bigsby Vibrato tailpiece, and includes the original pamphlet, John Lennon style control knob replacements in addition to the originals, and the vintage reissue gray case! Having long been discontinued, this John Lennon replica has since become quite desirable, and consequently very difficult to find. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to buy the most authentic reissue of John Lennon’s favorite Rickenbacker, because not too many of these become available online.
This ’89 325V59 is in near MINT condition and includes the original hard shell case, as well as the original catalog! It also features: a hollow Maple body construction, the original Jetglo (black) finish, a Maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard, (3) vintage reissue single coil “Toaster Top” pickups, gold on brown knobs as well as the metal barrel Lennon-style replicas, gold pickguard and name plate, Schaller Deluxe tuning machines, micro-adjustable bridge, Bigsby Vibrato tailpiece, chrome hardware, and the original hard shell case.
This guitar currently has Pyramid flatwound strings installed, identical to those preferred by The Beatles in the ’60s. It weighs a very light 6 lbs. and 13 oz. It sounds just like an old Ric’, and though it’s somewhat sacrilegious to say, I think it feels better. Whether you’re needing this piece to complete your Beatles’ gear collection, or you’re interested in a fantastic player’s instrument, this guitar will more than suffice.
