First produced in 1958, reintroduced years later, and eventually pulled out of production, the Rickenbacker 5002V58 remains entirely unique in its class as a double string electric instrument. Unsurpassed for clarity and brilliance, the single coil pickup crowns a Maple and Walnut laminated body with a gorgeous Fireglo finish.  It's surprisingly comfortable to play, even for those that aren't used to playing something so small.  The vintage-style Toaster Top pickups work perfectly for an 8 string mandolin, full of chime and top-end shine while still sounding very balanced.

This 5002V58 was made in 1998, is in excellent condition and comes with the original silver tolex hardshell case.  We rarely, rarely ever see any coming in the door, especially in this color.  

If you're in the market for an electric mandolin, looking for something to expand your sound, or just a huge Rickenbacker fan, this is the instrument for you.  Don't miss out on grabbing it before it's gone.
