Vintage Rickenbacker Solid-Bodied Guitars > CALIFORNIA: 1956 Combo 400 with Rare Kaufmann Vib-Ro-La

Rickenbacker Combo 400 pickguard
GUARD CHECKED FOR FIT
2010

The guard was checked for fit against the painted body, prior to anodizing it.

Note the rosewood fretboard, which was stripped, refretted, and given a coat of flat nitro sealer. Originally, the fretboard had no sealer, and it was quite dull on the surface from decades of fingering.
