I have a thing for 6-series Rickenbackers -- love the body shape -- cresting wave just screams surf to me. I've owned a 650 Dakota for six or seven years. I've kept my eyes peeled for a 650 Atlantis -- love the turquoise.
Found this guy several weeks ago and after some deliberation I picked it up. It's got GFS humbuckers currently installed, but also came with a set of Rickenbacker hi-gains, which is strange since these came with humbuckers from the factory.
I originally sold my wife on this purchase by saying I was going to sell the Dakota but I kind of want to keep both. Love looking at 'em side-by-side.
While the body didn't need to be routed for the GFS pickups some of the finish got scuffed up in the cavity when they were installed, and the hardware isn't well-fitted. It's also got 11s on it right now which are just way too light for me, but the neck is straight and the setup job is good. I don't have a proper stack in the city so before I take it to Chicago Music Exchange I'm going to have a trip home to wail on it a bit. I also have no idea as to if the Ricky single coils I've got were removed for a reason?
