This Rickenbacker 330 Thinline Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar in Fireglo 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 8 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. 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. 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).
Rickenbacker Guitars have been built in America since 1932 and is credited as the first maker of electric guitars.
