1990 12-string John Lennon Limited Edition in Jetglo, only 329 models made. USA Handbuilt. Trapeze tailpiece
The John Lennon Limited Edition, Model 355/12JL, is entirely handmade in America from solid Eastern Rock Maple with a rosewood fingerboard on a three quarter scale neck complimented with three vintage Rickenbacker pickups.
This series offers features which make it unique within the Rickenbacker product line. The Company located some of the original tooling to insure faithful recreation of the headstock, pickguard and nameplate.
The 355/12JL features a trapeze tailpiece. A special "vintage" case will be available with silver covering and crushed velvet interior similar to the original.
The Company only manufactured 2000 instruments from this John Lennon series, and only 329 355/12JL 12-string models were produced.
Unit number one of theis Limited Edition Series was delivered to Yoko Ono, who reportedly had the instrument specially decorated by artist Peter Max, before presenting the guitar to Sean Lennon as a birthday gift.
The models were introduced at the 1990 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim. Each guitar comes accompanied by an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity and Origin.
