The Rickenbacker Model 330 is your chance to take a page from rock 'n' roll's playbook. These iconic guitars, with their distinctive looks and iconic tones, have found their way into the hands of the Who to R.E.M., Jimmy Page to Tom Petty, and the Smiths to Radiohead. Today's 330 Thinline features the hotter Hi-gain pickups and 24-fret fingerboard of the 1970s models, for a spankier sound and hotter overdrive characteristics. Back in full effect are the classic lightweight semi-acoustic body, cat's eye soundhole, and "R" tailpiece.
The heart and soul of all Rickenbackers are the proprietary electronics. In the 330 electric guitar, you'll find a pair of Hi-gain single-coils. These pickups deliver the stringiness of many other single-coils, but with an aggressive cut that has driven so many rhythm and lead guitar tracks through the decades. A 5-knob control layout with "blend" knob gives you a wide range of sounds to play with.
