The 330 has been part of the Rickenbacker catalog since the late ‘50s when the model emerged evolving from the earlier Capri model. The 330 features many of the traits that make Rickenbacker such iconic instruments; from the “Crescent Moon" double-cutaway shape, the 3 piece maple/walnut neck, twin-tiered pickguard and “R” shape tailpiece nothing else looks quite like a Rickenbacker. The guitar sports two Rickenbacker ‘High Gain’ pickups with three-way switch, independent volume and tone controls as well as a 5th blend control. A 24 fret rosewood lacquer fingerboard with 24 3/4 scale length.
In use the guitar pickups sound excellent with plenty of the jangle and sparkle a Rickenbacker is known for. The pickups balance well especially with the use of the fifth blend control. The neck profile is a comfortable C shape, the frets have plenty of life left and the guitar plays well and is free from cracks, breaks and repairs.
There is a small bruise to the neck behind the 7th fret and a small mark by the A string tuner otherwise condition is excellent throughout.
The guitar weighs 7.5lbs and ships in its original Rickenbacker case.
