Any help is welcome, Thanks Art I'm looking for information on the early to mid 1970s Rick fretless basses.
A more valuable and interesting pursuit would be to explore the importance of Rickenbackers in the music We will never get a chance to know for sure out so lets drop the speculations here and now! In my opinion there has never been a Rickenbacker - Artist symbiosis like the one between John Lennon and his Rickenbacker 325. I hasten to remind you dear reader, that this is the story seen through my own eyes and the views expressed herein, should not be held up to the highest standard of scientific scrutiny. John had seen guitarist Jean "Toots" Thielemans, George Shearings Quintet, playing a Rickenbacker 325 in 1959. One day John and George went to Steinways in Hamburg (local research suggests that the guitar may have been acquired from the nearby Musikhaus Rothoff).
I purchased one used several years ago and I am currious about its history and value.
Thanks in advance for any information that you can provide.
Now we are looking for a letter and a number above the jack. For example a A0= a January, 1987 manufacture date and C2= March 1989 manufacture date.
