The Rickenbackers That Rocked the World
1964 export model 1995 in Fireglo
Rickenbacker began exporting guitars and basses to the UK distributor, Rose Morris, in 1964. Most of these “export” or “Rose Morris” models have unique features distinguishing them from Rickenbacker’s U.S. domestic production models. The exception is this solidbody model 1995, corresponding to the non-export model 615. It is almost impossible to tell the difference between the two models. In contrast to the 460, with its old-fashioned Combo-styled set-in bridge/string anchor construction, the 600 series adopted the adjustable bridge and the Ac’cent tailpiece from the Capri models, and also featured neck-thru construction.
