|Comments||Rickenbacker has maintained their production strictly in their Southern California facilities, resisting the temptation to grow for growth’s sake and send production to other countries. This has allowed them to keep close control of quality and production numbers, and no-one else produces guitars that look or sound like a Ric. However, the limits of production also mean that available Rics can be harder to find.The 360 is a distinctive guitar, but unlike some attempts at making a distinctive design, it really works. It looks unlike any other brand or model, it’s very comfortable to play, wear or sit with, and it sounds very good.This 2005 example of the 360/6 looks like it came from the factory recently – it’s in excellent condition with no appreciable wear or finish damage. It even has the “Made in America” sticker on the pickguard. Being a 360, it’s also wired for Ric-O-Sound, allowing the use of a different amplifier or channel for each pickup.|
