With the body and neck both made of Maple, the Rickenbacker 360/12 String Semi-Hollow Electic Guitar sound is most certainly bright and jangly! Aided further by the Hi-Gain pickups, if you want jangle, Rickenbacker has your jangle right here!
A Semi-Hollow, All-Maple body features a single Cat's Eye Sound Hole on the treble side. The larger body and semi-hollow construction allow this guitar to have a strong acoustic tone, no amp necessary to enjoy its Chorusy-Jingle-Jangle but, wow does it REALLY shine when you do!
Rickenbacker's Hi-Gain Single-Coil PIckups are truly the stuff of legend(ary recordings). The Late 1960s just wouldn't have sounded the same without them! Each pickup has its own volume and tone control and is accessible alone or in tandem via the 3-way pickup toggle. Rickenbacker’s Rick-O-Sound parallel-mono outputs allow you to send each pickup to its own amplifier. Think Neck Pickup through a Deluxe Reverb and the Bridge through a perfect breaking-up Vox AC-30.
As mentioned above, the neck is made from maple and the fingerboard is made from rosewood. The Ric 360/12 features a 10" fingerboard radius, triangle fingerboard inlays, and a bound fingerboard. The 'set neck' has been slimmed down and re-contoured for increased playing comfort.
The world's most popular twelve-string electric guitar boasts all of the deluxe features of its Model 360 cousin. A standard for recording for more than thirty years, its haunting, melodic chorus has continued to benefit from evolution. The slimmed and re-contoured neck now makes the Rickenbacker 360/12 12 String Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar easier to play than ever!
