1958 Rickenbacker Capri 325 Autumn Gold – Short Neck Long Body.  This is one of three “Longbody” Capri  prototypes produced by Rickenbacker during the R&D stages of the Capri concept in late 1957.  Guitar features a short-scale neck on an elongated semi-hollow body, which is made of several pieces of figured wood laminated together “butcher-block” style.  Its unusual length required a short “extension” piece to complete the bass horn.  The production 325 guitars that followed had a body that was shorter by about 1.5 to 2.0 inches.  The serial no. stamped in the elongated jackplate is, a few numbers away from John Lennon’s V81 325 Capri.  See additional detailed photos and information regarding this particular guitar on pages 20-21 of “Rickenbacker, Pioneer of the Electric Guitar” (1995) published by Rittor Music, Japan. This guitar is in near-mint original condition with its original custom-made HSC.
