A Near Fine and All Original 1958 Rickenbacker M-8 Combo
Rickenbacker's version of the the Fender Champ Combo
1958 Rickenbacker M-8 Amplifier
This wonderful 1958 Rickenbacker M-8 combo weighs just 10 lbs and is a sweet little practice amp with a dark warm tube tone. It has been recently serviced, the original Jensen CQ8 eight inch speaker has been expertly re-coned and all the wiring is to original specifications. The M-8 is 13 3/4" wide, 11 3/4" tall and 5 1/2" rising to 6" deep at the sloped bottom. Original silver-gray tolex covered cabinet with four original metal feet. Original tan grill cloth with a rectangular metal "Rickenbacker" logo plate and original gray plastic handle. Gray metal control panel with a single chicken head volume and on/off control knob, dual inputs and a 1 amp fuse. The potentiometer is dated November 1958. The tubes consist of a single 6V6, a 12AX7, and a 5Y3 rectifier. The five digit serial number T90XX is stamped on the inside bottom of the cabinet. This Rickenbacker amp has a nice vintage fuzzy tube sound. The plastic handle and silver-gray color give the amp a very 50's look. There is an old Rickenbacker sticker on the top of the cabinet by the handle. This sixty year old and now rather rare combo is in superb and exceptionally fine (9.00) condition with virtually no wear to the tolex or grill cloth. Rickenbacker's version of the the Fender Champ Combo. (#2027)
