Oral History Information
Company NameRickenbacker International Corp.
Cindalee Hall first attended a NAMM Show in the late 1960s and recalls being the only women she saw that day on the trade show floor. Since that time not only has her own career in the industry grown and developed, but the role of women has changed as well. As President of the Rickenbacker Guitar Company in Santa Ana, California, Cindalee has witnessed firsthand the changes in our industry. During her NAMM Oral History interview she reflected on those changes as well as the history and products of her company, which was formed by Adolph Rickenbacker and George Beauchamp back in 1931. Cindalee is proud of the company and its products as well as her two children who worked in the company.
