Whoever loves pure design and natural wood can only fall for this über-sexy Rickenbacker 650 Sierra with its oiled walnut body and gold-plated hardware. I'm never bored with contemplating the 'cresting wave' of its upper horn (I'm the 25-year lover of a 620!), an acme in woodcraft!
And I love to see this guitar worn, because with its elegance, the beautiful wood and all that gold, it could easily pass for a precious work of art to be kept in a window, and this one has been obviously extensively played on stage. For those who think that an artificially worn guitar has any value, look at the real thing!
