Superb near 20 year old Rickenbacker 330/12 in Fireglo finish, the guitar is in excellent condition and has all the jangle you could want from the classic sounding Rickenbacker pickups.
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 to the “R” shape tailpiece, nothing else looks quite like a Rickenbacker.
This guitar from 2004 has strayed very little from the original Model 360/12 blueprint from mid-’64, the Pickups are Rickenbacker “High Gain” models, a change that happened in 1968, and the tuners are lightweight Schaller M6, a good thing when there are 12 of them at the headstock. The guitar is in a stunning Fireglo finish with chrome and white plastics.
The guitar is in great condition throughout, it has been played but very well cared for. It plays very well currently set up with regular 10 gauge 12-string set. The pickups sound excellent with plenty of the jangle and sparkle Rickenbackers are known for and they balance well especially with the use of the fifth blend control. The neck profile is a comfortable C shape, frets have plenty of life left and the guitar plays well and is free from cracks, breaks and repairs.
The guitar weighs 7.9lbs and comes with its original Rickenbacker case.
