Rickenbacker 360 FireGlo, 2013

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

Introduced in 1958 as a Roger Rossmeisl design and available in a variety of colours, the Rickenbacker 360 FireGlo is a distinctive instrument. FireGlo is Rickenbacker’s term for a cherry sunburst.

This Rickenbacker 360 FireGlo was built during the first week of January 2013 and is in great overall shape, with only very light finish wear. Fret wear is very light. The heaviest wear is to the ‘Made in USA’ sticker on the upper pickguard!

The original design for the 300 series guitars builds the body from two sections of Maple. The top cap is given an external shape, then the interior is routed out from the back to create a hollow cavity. After bracing and shaping, a flat Maple back is put on and on some models, the join is bound (there is no binding on the 330). This is why 360 body binding tends to be on the sound holes and back but not the top. The neck is built up of two sections of Maple with a center Walnut section, aiding stability and a bound 24-fret Rosewood fingerboard is added with triangle position markers and, almost specific to Rickenbacker, a gloss finish.

As a modern Rickenbacker 360 FireGlo, it carries Hi-Gain pickups, a pickup blend control (the fifth, smaller knob) and is wired to provide both standard Mono and Ric-O-Sound ‘Stereo’ outputs. The six-saddle aluminum bridge is adjustable for height and tilt, and each saddle can be moved for intonation. This guitar is complete and original, to the point of still having the bridge cover installed.

The original Rickenbacker molded hard shell case is included.
