An Exceptionally Fine All Original 1965 Rickenbacker 625.
1965 Rickenbacker 625 Stereo "Rick-O-Sound".
This exceptionally fine thirteen-inch-wide solid-body with a double-cutaway 'cresting-wave' shape weighs just 7.30 lbs. Two-piece solid maple body with neck-through-body construction. One-piece maple neck with a nut width of just under 1 5/8 inches, a scale length of 24 3/4 inches and a very comfortable medium profile. Rosewood fretboard with 21 original medium-to-thin frets and triangular 'crushed' pearl (extending across fretboard) markers. Serial number "EG 19 9" stamped onto jack input(s) assembly. Headstock with opaque white plastic, crescent-shaped plate lettered in white "Rickenbacker" and secured with three screws. Individual Van Ghent closed-back tuners with kidney-bean shaped pearloid buttons. Two Rickenbacker height adjustable "toaster" single-coil pickups with chrome covers and outputs of 7.80k and 8.04k. Split-level two-piece white opaque plastic pickguard with four screws. Five controls (two volume, two tone, and one blend control) plus three-way selector switch all on pickguard. The potentiometers are stamped stamped "137 6517" (CTS, April 1965). Seven-sided black plastic knobs with metal tops. Rickenbacker individually adjustable six-saddle bridge with four height-adjustment screws which in turn sits on a Rickenbacker metal plate which is secured by two screws. Rickenbacker Ac'cent Vibrato tailpiece. Two side-mounted jack inputs, one 'normal' and one Rick-O-Sound Stereo. Inside the control cavity, written in red pencil is "625-T". This fine guitar is in exceptionally fine (9.00+) condition with just the bare minimum of belt-buckle scarring on the back and a few tiny surface marks on the edges - certainly the best example of of a 625 that we have ever seen. Housed in the original Rickenbacker three-latch, rectangular Silver-Gray case with black leather ends and blue plush lining (9.00). (#1678).
