Guitarist's Dream

I'd heard of the D'Angelico Rifle but never seen it. Hmmm, good busker's axe.

Speaking of axes, I didn't even know that Rickenbacker did acoustics.

Like all contemporary Beatles fans, I knew that John strummed a weirdly-shaped solid and that the sleek viola-shaped bass McCartney pranced around with on TV provided welcome relief from the ubiquitous Fender profile.

So what do I see peeking over a table top at the Blackbird but the familiar bland head of a Rickenbacker, and acoustic, to boot. Turns out to be a 700S series and not a bad tone or action for the hard traveling it'd clearly been put through.
