The Rickenbacker “Frying Pan": this was the first electric guitar produced. it was created by George Beauchamp, manufactured by Rickenbacker Electro. It was a lap steel guitar designed to cash in on the popularity of Hawaiian music during the
Eddie's Frankenstrat - the guitar that had us all learning to tap, hammer and pull off. There's nothing very precious about this guitar. It was Eddie's lab for both technique and hardware. Looked great on stage but mess close up.
