The Rickenbackers That Rocked the World

It has six strings, two octave pairs and two singles, and a very thin banjo-style neck, along with crushed pearl inlays, a special roller bridge and Ac’cent vibrola. The model 6006 Banjoline has a 381-style body with German carve and checkered binding on the top.
