1967 model 365 refinished in Shaded Green
"I acquired this guitar stripped of its original finish and it was refinished in nitrocellulose lacquer in green, followed by the burst pattern of the standard Fireglo finish. Several Rickenbacker guitars were produced at the factory with this finish color in the late 1960s, though this is not one of them. "
