Because great guitars deserve this.

 

 

Many of the Rickenbacker guitars from the mid- to late-50s (Combo 400, Combo 450, Combo 650, Combo 850, 425, 450, 900, 950, 1000) were initially designed to be used with a saxophone strap rather than the omnipresent guitar strap that we see today.   This strap connected to the guitar using a metal ring that was fastened to the back side of the upper horn.

The earlier guitars used the more common 3-hole, nickel-plated ring, while the last guitars to have this feature (primarily the 1959 425 and 450) used a 4-hole, chrome-plated ring.  Fortunately for you, we sell both styles.

For looks, quality, and accuracy: there is simply no other choice for your Rickenbacker.
