1936 Rickenbacker model B-6 Lapsteel 

Rickenbacker Model B-6 Model Lap Steel Electric Guitar (1936), made in Los Angeles, California, serial # C-1120, polished black finish, molded Bakelite body and neck.  In excellent condition.

These instruments were the standard of their day and are still generally considered the finest-sounding lap steel ever made. This B-6 features the famous 1 1/2″ horseshoe magnet pickup found only on pre-war guitars and strings loading through the body, the combination of features generally considered to produce the finest sound.

The body is molded black Bakelite with hollow cavities covered by chromed metal plates; the screwed-on neck has integral molded frets and nut with inset white position dots.  The original tuners have been replaced by open back Grovers.  The volume pot was also replaced.

The original violin style case fell apart the and the owner built a very nice custom case.

Comes with 2 slides including the original bakelite covered bar.

An exceptional instrument
