1948 Rickenbacker Lap Steel in Phoenix for $350

This guy is selling off all of his lap steel and gear including a 1948 Rickenbacker ACE and a 1792 Fender VibroChamp - the ACE is a student model but would be very desireable if it has the "horshe" pickup that they also used on the Academy models in the 1940's. This is made of bakelite - not the stainless steel of many other Rick lap steel guitars.

Some good vintage stuff for the blues, rock or hawaiian style. Get to me before I throw these on ebay. Rickenbacker ACE Electric Lap Steel - bakelite, about 1948, wonderful tone, fantastic sustain. $350, soft case included Royal Hawaiian acoustic, "O" body, amazing sustain for a non-electric early 50's. $150, with hard case Fender Vibrochamp Silverface 1972 I think $275, it has a Jensen speaker, will include a new in package Peavey foot switch to turn vibrator on or off Fender volume pedal, not a remake $60 Dano electric practice amp (not vintage) $50 Sony Microphone $5 Yamaha chromatic tuner $10 Two guitar stands $10 each Folding music stand $10 Misc tone bars (steels) and picks Misc guitar/amplified cords Jerry Bird instructional manual (missing audio tapes) Several vintage Hawaiian music books C-6 Gospel training tape Hank Williams music book Call Gary for questions 623 478 2938

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
