This somewhat wild 1982 Rickenbacker 481 was purchased here new, and has just come back to us. The 481 model was made from 1973 through 1984, featuring two humbucking pickups, a phase reversal switch, and 24 slanted frets. From the original Rickenbacker literature: "This slight slant of the frets across the fingerboard eliminates the long chord reaches, reduces stretch length, and matches precisely the natural angle of the fretting fingers.” Neat, doncha think? Far as we know no one else ever did anything like it. All set up here in our own shop and ready to go; fab action, hot Ric tone. A bit scraped up front and back by original fanatic owner and better for it, brings the price down to Earth at only $1995 w/ohsc
