Rickenbacker Model 6006 Banjoline

in Mapleglo


This early example of a model 6006 Banjoline has a 381-style body with German carve and checkered binding on body front; however, there is checkered binding but no carve on the flat back. The Banjoline was essentially a 4-string electric banjo with the bottom D and G strings doubled to give the instrument a fuller sound; the concept was developed by Rickenbacker in conjunction with the renowned banjo player, Eddie Peabody. With crushed-pearl fretboard inlays, roller bridge and Ac’cent vibrola, the model 6006 Banjoline is one of the few Rickenbacker production instruments with a checker-bound headstock. This near-mint early example was acquired from the Tatado Collection and is all original with black OHSC.
