Default Roger McGuinn's 12 string "Rickenbacker" is 4 sale

Only $750,000.00 I wonder if they'll take a trade? No, wait, my house isn't worth1/10 that much.

Ed Roman?

BTW, the photo is of a RM limited Edition 370/12, it may have been owned by Roger (maybe), but it is still a reissue, not his '60s original.

Maybe it was Jim McGuinn's guitar. :-)

You being a "Black and White Photography lover and all, Jeff, I can see why you would prefer the original photo opt, however, so just for you...

The Wikipedians tell this story:

Quote:
Religious faith and name changes

When he originally started with The Byrds, he used the name Jim, which he thought to be too plain. During 1965 McGuinn briefly explored the Subud spiritual association and began to practice the latihan, an exercise in quieting the mind. McGuinn changed his name in 1967 after Subud's founder Bapak told him it would better "vibrate with the universe." Bapak sent Jim the letter "R" and asked him to send back ten names starting with that letter. Owing to a fascination with airplanes, gadgets and science fiction, he sent names like "Rocket", "Retro", "Ramjet", and "Roger", the latter a term used in signalling protocol over two-way radios, military and civil aviation. Roger was the only "real" name in the bunch and Bapak chose it. While using the name Roger professionally from that time on, McGuinn only officially changed his middle name from Joseph to Roger. McGuinn left the Subud spiritual association in 1977, the same year that he met his wife Camilla (they married the next year). Both have become committed Christians since that time.
