Rick 481’s are very rare, and this version is rarer still. Most 481’s have slanted frets and chrome pickup covers, but this one has straight frets and black covers. This guitar is not mint, but it’s in nice shape. There is a lot of checking, and some minor nicks and dings. There’s some fret wear. There’s what looks to be some red ink on the front of the headstock. There’s some finish chips on the lower edge of the body (guitar stand anyone?) All 4 Pots date to the 14th week of 1974, and the guitar is all original, with no cracks or separations. Cool and rare guitar.
