AS far as I was aware Rickenbacker do not offer one-off or custom shop versions of their guitars and basses, but here we have a factory one-off Rickenbacker 481/12 in a stunning walnut finish, made in August 2011. I guess it's some kind of prototype or experimental model. It has a "bass shape" 4002 body married to a 660/12 neck with unfinished maple fingerboard, and is currently listed on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £3,995.
