Friends, My Little Rickenbacker 325 V59 arrived safely yesterday from Utah. It slept in the box for the night to acclimatize. I would sincerely like to thank the good folks at Guitar Chimp. I would also like to thank whoever owned this little gem prior to me. The untouched owners Care manual, sealed tool kit/sealed polishing cloth were all nestled in the case. GC rated the guitar/original vintage style grey case as 9.5...I have to disagree. Out of a perfect score of ten, the little Ric is a definite twelve. A ''closet classic'' for sure! the guitar/case is in brand new/unused condition, and for what it is, was fairly priced. I'm a happy man! BIB.
