A very rare opportunity to acquire one of these super scarce Rickenbacker John Kay 318 guitars in original case. Introduced in 1988 and limited to a very small run of only 250 guitars worldwide! This one has been used and played and does have some marks and dings associated with 30 years of use. The frets however have plenty of life in them and overall it’s in excellent condition.

Currently the cheapest one of these online, in fact the only one I can find is just shy of £4200. This one isn’t as clean but with a price that starts with a 2 it’s been priced to sell.
