Obviously a BC Rich copy, this vintage 1960’s Shaftesbury Model 3261 is a lesser-spotted item and no mistake. Gleaming in impossibly ‘60s white and screaming its tuxedo colour scheme, this cats-eyed instrument is a smashing example of a Ricken-not-er, and has come to Wunjos in amazing condition. These guitars were a testament to Rose Morris first bringing Rickenbacker to the UK many years ago, and although this guitar is far removed from the 330 that inspired it, that doesn’t stop it being incredibly cool. Various forms of this instrument exist, with some finished in sunburst and fitted with Bigsbys. This version has a body cut with very similar lines to its forebear, with a Rosewood fingerboard that houses 21 frets instead of the 330’s 24, as well as a zero fret, just in case you thought it wasn’t ‘60s enough. The headstock does a grand job of showing its lineage with that sweeping nameplate, and it’s got some of the sweetest-looking tuners you’ll ever see, with tiny designs stamped onto the back of the enclosures. The pickups are staple-tops and wired through twin sets of Volume and Tone controls with a blend knob, and selection is facilitated by a three-way switch. In true vintage style, the vibrato has an outrageously long arm and fabulous tailpiece, so if you’re looking to add dramatic wobbles to your spidery lines, this is the guitar for you! Truly a rare bit of gear, especially in this condition, it’s impossible to say when or if we’ll get another one of these, so come to Wunjo Electric and get it while you can. Protected by a three-year warranty with our Carnaby technicians, this vintage 1960’s Shaftesbury Model 3261 is available at Wunjos with a gig bag as standard.
