Nice Bakelite steel with the iconic Rickenbacker horseshoe-magnet pickup, but at a far more affordable price than the more deluxe Style B (Ace models were only offered for about 5 years). Except for the replaced tuner buttons on the original gears this Ace appears to be much as it was when new (pickup adjusting screws were changed, however). Wear to the finish as shown in photos 1 and 7. The original chipboard case looks better than it functions, as the edge of the lid has some tears.
