"Eventually these things, like works of art, end up getting bought by some billionaire and go into some secret closet so nobody can know about it." Now, Fogerty has been reunited with the long-lost instrument.
Fogerty first got a Rickenbacker in 1967 when he was still on active duty in the Army.
Something with a bit more bottom end than my other guitars, without getting tubby (like some rosewood Martins, at least to my ear).
Given my taste for nice Martins and boutique instruments, I spent way too much time browsing at the usual rosewood suspects online: various flavors of new and vintage Martin D-28s, Collings D2Hs, Santa Cruz D/PWs and Tony Rice models, and similar offerings from Huss & Dalton and Dana Bourgeois.
Many of his most famous tunes were written and recorded on it, including "Green River," "Travelin' Band" and "Up Around The Bend," but it had been out of his hands for 43 years.
"I never imagined I'd see it again," he tells Rolling Stone.
When I was in college in the mid-90s, all I wanted was a Rickenbacker electric guitar.
Here’s the story behind Adrian’s 1996 Höfner 500/1… I’ve owned this little gem since it arrived at my studio on April 4th, 2012.
The Treble Bezels are CNC machined out of high strength black ABS plastic. Available in 3 styles to fit either 4003 or 4001: Note: Some early 4003 Rickenbackers had the straight 4001 style chrome surround without the step down.
They are top coated with a soft touch clear urethane . Make sure you specify what style chrome surround is on your bass when placing your order.
It matches the 1963 version in every detail with the full sound we all love.
Pick of the Ricks is proud to be the exclusive dealer for the Treble Bezel.
