What's more beautiful than a Rickenbacker 330/12 in Fireglo? Not much! This is one of the most beautiful finishes of all time! From a deep cheery on the edges to a pale pink in the middle, this finish indeed glows!
If you want a 12 String Electric Guitar, you probably want a Ric. Its place in recording history is rock solid. Much of the music from the 1960s would simply not sound the same without this guitar! Jingle, jangle, bell-like sweetness pours out of this guitar. And let's face, a guitar like this is at home being strummed. Open position chords have never sounded more complex while arpeggios ring out articulated and well-balanced.
Basically the same as Model 330 but with twelve strings. Careful acoustic research has resulted in the full, rich, and warm sound of this popular model. Two single-coil pickups on a full-size body are accented by a traditionally shaped soundhole. The 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard is punctuated by dot inlay fret markers, with full double cutaways permitting access to all the frets. The standard output is monaural through a single jack plate. Also available with an additional pickup (Model 340/12) and as six-string versions with either 2 or 3 pickups (Model 330 and Model 340 respectively).
Rickenbacker Guitars have been built in America since 1932 and is credited as the first maker of electric guitars. The term jingle jangle, as it relates to guitars, is synonymous with Rickenbacker Guitars. Tom Petty, The Beatles (literally all of them, even Ringo!), The Byrds, John Fogerty, Pete Townsend, Geddy Lee, Chris Squier, Lemmy, Mike Rutherford, Peter Buck, Johnny Marr, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, this list of Ric players goes on and on because, let's face it, nothing else sounds like a Rickenbacker!
