11 on 11/11/11: #9 - Rickenbacker 650 Sierra with walnut wood body

OK, it's the 11th November 2011, that is 11/11/11, and as such today has been designated Nigel Tufnel Day. To celebrate this day of Maximum Elevenness, we here at Guitarz - for this day only - will be posting an unprecedented ELEVEN blog posts! So, keep tuned throughout the day for eleven weird and wonderful guitars!

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!
