The Rickenbacker 430 was a Rickenbacker entry level solid body electric introduced in 1971 and discontinued in 1982. It has a double cutaway body similar in shape to the later 230 models. While the 430 was a budget model, being a Rickenbacker it's a well-made instrument, but lacking some of the fancy features of the higher end models.
Rickenbacker advertised at least three different versions of the 430 in the 1970s but the guitars pictured in the first brochures were prototypes which the company never produced. The earliest example was one of Forrest White's projects and had a Fender style headstock with six tuners on one side. This one and the second one shown had single tone and volume controls. The actual production model Rickenbacker 430 guitar differed from these early prototypes . Although it had a similar body shape with a twenty-four fret bolt-on maple neck, almost everything else was different. There were two pickups, each with its own volume and tone control. All controls and the output jack were mounted on the pickguard. The mahogany body had a natural finish and the fingerboard had dot inlays.
