This Rickenbacker 330 Thinline Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar in Jetglo is brand new! Fresh from the Ric Factory, this USA-made Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar has all the jingle-jangle any Ric Fan could hope for. With the guitar weighing in at only 7 lbs 12 oz, this will be a manageable, balanced guitar on a strap, and trust me, you'll have a hard time putting it down!
Careful acoustic research has resulted in the full, rich, and warm sound of this popular model. The Semi-Hollow body is constructed from Maple and then finished in the legendary Fireglo Burst. This allows the unique characteristics of the wood to be seen, adding a layer of depth to its look. The 24 fretRosewood fingerboard sits atop a Maple Neck and is punctuated by dot inlay fret markers, with full double cutaways permitting access to all the frets. A 10" fingerboard radius makes playing chords a breeze and allows for easy bends and vibrato without a big "uphill" struggle. 24.75" scale length (otherwise known as Gibson Scale Length) keeps the strings feeling slinky and less stiff on the fretting fingers.
Two single-coil pickups on a full-size body provide you with all the Jingle Jangle you could possibly need. The Legendary Rickenbacker tone comes stock on the 330! Standard output is monaural through a single jack plate. Also available with an additional pickup (Model 340) and as twelve string versions with either 2 or 3 pickups (Model 330/12 and Model 340/12 respectively). Contact us if you are interested in ordering one for yourself!
