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.
