Rickenbacker 481 For Sale

Another “bass-shaped” Rickenbacker guitar has turned up on eBay, this time it’s a Rickenbacker 481.The differences between this and the Rickenbacker 480 we looked at the other day are subtle. The 481 does not have the contoured edges of the 480, instead it has a bound body. You’ll also observe that it has different pickups (humbuckers) mounted on a larger pick guard.
The Rickenbacker 481 for sale of pickups, in fact, are set at an angle. Look closer and you’ll see that the bridge, nut and the frets themselves are also angled, but not like on a modern “fanned fret” guitar (such as the Novax system); these frets are angled whilst remaining parallel with each other. (In other words, the scale-length is contant for each string, unlike on fanned-fret instruments).
The Rickenbacker 481 was similar to the Rickenbacker 480 but with different pickups and slanted frets.  Both guitars used a “Cresting Wave” body shape similar to Rickenbacker’s 4000-series basses.
Years of Production: 1973 – 1983
The price of original Rickenbacker 481 for sale is $2400 .
