1938 Rickenbacker Spanish Electro guitar first solid body Bakelite electric guitar.

1938 Rickenbacher Spanish Electro guitar. Another instrument back when Rickenbacker had an "H" in it and a pre WWII electric guitar! This guitar had advancements way ahead of its time...Roller saddles, mechanical vibrato, bolt-on neck, hollow body. VERY cool! This instrument is considered the first solid body ever made even though it is hollowed out. The chambering was only for weight relief...But it is STILL very heavy!
