The 360 has been part of the Rickenbacker catalog since the late ‘50s when the model emerged evolving from the earlier Capri model. The 360 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 2022 has strayed very little from the original Model 360 blueprint from the mid-sixties, The body has the rounded top and softer horns introduced in ’64, the Pickups are Rickenbacker “High Gain” models, a change that happened in 1968, and the tuners are lightweight Schaller M6’s. The guitar looks great in a stunning high lustre Jetglo finish with chrome hardware and white plastics.
Condition is superb throughout having been played but extremely well cared for. It plays very well currently set up with regular 10-49 gauge set. The pickups sound excellent with plenty of the jangle and sparkle Rickenbacker guitars are known for balancing especially well with the use of the fifth blend control. The neck profile is a comfortable C shape with a comfortable string spacing. The frets have plenty of life left and the guitar plays well and is free from cracks, breaks and repairs.
The weight is an impressive 7.6lbs and the guitar comes with its original Rickenbacker case, documents and paperwork.
