IF you read this blog and have no idea what to do with your truck-load of extra cash, will you please stop fucking around and buy me Pete Townshend’s original Rickenbacker 330 12 string? Will ya?
Who knows if it’s really authentic or a well done hoax, but if Pete didn’t get awesome and smash it, the guitar must be a real beauty to play.
You have the rarest of rare opportunities to bid on a piece of genuine rock n’ roll history. This is a 1964 Rickenbacker 12-string guitar that was owned and played by non other than Pete Townsend himself. (Yes, we’re talking THAT Pete Townsend of the Who). It is in pristine condition, plays like a dream and will take it’s rightful place as one of the true treasures of your collection. It comes with case and letter of authenticity scribed by Townsend himself. This Ricky was the only one made in 1964 and imported to the UK. It was originally fire-glow in color, later sprayed black. What makes this truly a remarkable piece is that Townsend thought so much of this particular guitar that he didn’t smash it like all the others. Why didn’t he, you ask? Because it is the very first 330 12-string Ricky ever made. A truly special gotta have piece of music lore.

Anyway, start bidding, bid high, bid often, and once you win I’ll send you my address so you can send it to me.
