The year 1938! Of course you all remember that as the year Sea Biscuit beat War Admiral. It was also the year of the famous Orson Wells broadcast that caused panic in the streets. A new house cost $3,900. The average wage was 1730.00 per year. A loaf of bread cost 9 cents. It was also the year somebody bought this cool Rickenbacker Model 59 lap steel. We are talking history here folks, and boy is this instrument is full of history. It is stamped metal with a screaming, original horseshoe pickup, volume and tone knobs, and original black/gray burst finish. One tuner has been repaired with a different button. One knob is broken but is functional. Comes with original case. It shows a fair amount of wear; it is 80 years old after all. This is a great blues lap steel. Tune her to open E and let it wail! Make this beautiful old Rick lap steel yours, and relive 1938 forever.
