Rickenbacker 360 Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar

Rickenbacker 360 Semi-Hollowbody Guitar
Bound body. Rosewood fingerboard inlaid with triangular pearloid markers.

This guitar broke all the rules of traditional styling when it appeared amid the ‘British’ sound of the 1960’s. Subtly updated through the years, this deluxe hollow body with its special contour around the entire body perimeter is still perhaps the most comfortable guitar of all. The bound body and Rosewood fingerboard, inlayed with triangular pearled markers, provide an exceptionally attractive appearance. Stereo output is standard. Click here for more info!

Feature:
The electronics are solid and the pickups clean and transparent. The only “accessory” was the hardshell case, which you will want to have if you’re doing gigs. As far as features, it has a fixed bridge and both stereo and mono outputs, which is pretty cool.

Well balanced so it is easy to handle. The neck is narrow for a 12 string guitar which you like. Great sound however, just like most 12 string guitars it is a little difficult to Tune. More experience with tuning it will help. Click here for features!

Quality:
This product is incredible, despite its semi hollow body it can take a lot of beating. Look, for instance, at the way Tom Gabel of Against Me! Plays his on tour!

Sound:
The Tone is superb, ringing tones of velvet notes and chords. This is why the Beatles, etc used this type of guitar.

Value:
If you want a Classic studio tone guitar this is it, defiantly worth it. Check latest price!

Ease of Use:
This is the easiest-to-play guitar that’s ever graced your calloused fingers. The neck is rosewood, so it’s easy to slide up and down the neck with relative ease. This has a nice range of high and low tones, very playable, the action is just right.

Desirability:
The so-called sex appeal of a Rickenbacker is like the sex appeal of a classic muscle car. Maybe a young kid driving around in a Honda Civic won’t like it, as he tosses his Korean-made Epiphone in the trunk, but the rest of us know American Quality when we see it.

This guitar has a very classic look that you immediately identify with the great artists that have used Rickenbackers before: George Harrison, Sam Cooke, Tom Petty, and Buck Owens just to name a few. This might not be the guitar for people that dig “Pantera,” but it is a beautiful instrument.

Overall:
It’s simply perfection. It is playable different models. Once you play a “RICK”, there is no turning back.

Rickenbacker 360/12 12-String Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar

Rickenbacker 360/12 12-String Semi-Hollowbody Electric GuitarSlimmed and re-contoured neck makes this model 360/12 easier to play than ever.

The world’s most popular 12-string electric guitar boasts all of the deluxe features of its Model 360 cousin. A standard for recording for more than 30 years, its haunting, melodic chorus has continued to benefit from evolution. The slimmed and re-contoured neck now makes model 360/12 easier to play than ever.

Feature:
It is a 12-string semi-hollowbody guitar with a solid top, it has the Old Body style (same as the 330), a binding at the back and at the front, and on the slash hole. The controls are the classic Rickenbacker controls: two volumes, two tones, and a fifth control knob. The two pickups were made by Rickenbacker; they are high-gains (single coils). The electronic is entirely passive.

The body is finished in Jetglo (black). The bridge is the classic Rickenbacker bridge, and the guitar has a R tailpiece. The tuners are made by Schaller. The neck is the classic Rickenbacker neck. Included with the guitar were the case and a Rick-o-sound. The Ric-o-sound feature is useful when you want that real vintage Ric sound, and the guitar is actually quite versatile, as most 12-strings aren’t.

Quality:
it is stunning, with no blemishes and nice grain. All of the electronics work perfectly. The tuners work perfectly, too, and there are no spurs or anything on the saddles or in the tailpiece grooves. The frets are perfectly leveled. Everything was great from the factory.  Would like to see more coats of finish to bring out the natural beauty of the wood with a higher gloss.

Sound:
Absolutely beautiful. As a stand alone plugged in the tones that emminate for the 360/12 os humbling. Run the 360/12 thru a Guitar Port of Line6 Pod and give it some British amp modes and a little compressor, bam, you are a jangle-master. This guitar has the best electric 12 string sound for its type and purpose.

Ease of Use:
It’s incredibly easy to get great sounds from this product. The fifth knob might confuse some newcomers to the Rick-Land, but reading the manual (it is not that long, honestly!) will clear that up. The pots are arranged a bit differently than on generic-brand guitars, but they’re easy to figure out, too, especially since they’re labeled. The neck is so much easier to get used to than everyone else seems to think.

Neck cut is phenomenal, as is the weight and design of the guitar. it plays great, and no other 12-string plays anywhere near it. The pickups have a very wide range and are easy to find great sounds with.

Value:
No doubt about it. For fear of not being able to afford another Rickenbacker, they are priced most reasonably. This is not a cheep guitar but you do get what you pay for. Properly cared for the will last for generations. Check Latest Price.

Desirability:
The visual appeal of the Rickenbacker is incredible. The Rickenbacker carries a history unlike any other American made guitar. The first time holding a Rickenbacker is nearly orgasmic!

It would look great maybe onstage or something its design is basically genius as it brings more opportunities to bands and guitarists. This thing just plain looks as great as it sounds.

Overall:
Overall, it has surpassed all of expectations (which were very good to begin with.) Its sound is to die for, and its visual styling unique (Rickenbacker’s lawyers make sure of this.), and can’t beat the price for genuine American made quality.
