Rickenbacker Model 360/12C63 12 String Electric FireGlo 2014

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Rickenbacker Model 360/12C63 12 String Electric FireGlo is based on the original 1963 specifications of the most recognizable 12-string guitar, made famous by George Harrison. It sports a double-bound version of what is now the ‘330’ style body and the early FireGlo sunburst shaded finish. Toaster-top vintage style pickups, trapeze tailpiece and Rickenbacker’s unique compact headstock, this is as close as most can get to that 60’s tone.

The production use of this double-bound body shape on the Rickenbacker Model 360/12C63 model was limited to the 1963 model year. For 1964, the now-familiar rounded top, single bound body appeared and brought with it the ‘R’ tailpiece, replacing the trapeze style seen here. However, the double-bound body was still available on special order until at least 1968.

This pristine 360/12c63 example dates to the 22nd week of 2014 – between May 26 and June 1 and was built at the Rickenbacker shop in Santa Ana, California. It is in overall original, complete and excellent condition with virtually no wear. Even the bridge cover is still installed.

The original rectangular Rickenbacker case, in silver finish with black trim and all original case candy is included.
