Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Rickenbacker 360 is an iconic instrument originally designed by Roger Rossmeisl in 1958 as a flat-topped, thin hollow body model with top and back binding.

Halfway through 1964, the Rickenbacker 360 gained a New Style body to further differentiate the 360 from the 330. The New Style body is Maple, but has a chambered top with very rounded edges and integrated sides. The back is attached to the top/side assembly, and is then bound – this is why there is only binding on the back. In the mid 1970’s, two further changes were made with a 24-fret neck becoming standard and High-Gain pickups replaced the traditional ‘Toaster Tops’. The neck is built up of outer Maple sections against an inner Walnut section, providing a strong, stable result. In the case of larger headstocks, Walnut will be used for the outer extensions.

Here we’re looking at a Rickenbacker 360 in JetGlo – Ric’s term for a gloss Black finish – and in good clean and complete condition – even the bridge cover is in place! This example has light play wear to the finish, and a bit of finish wear on the lower corner of the back, at the edge of the binding.

As other Rickenbacker 360 examples, the wiring allows both Mono and ‘Ric-O-Sound’ output, where each pickup can be routed to a separate amp, amp channel, or mixer channel strip. The Ric-O-Sound jack requires a special cable, which is wired identically to a standard ‘insert cable’, used for attaching outboard effects to a mixing console.

The Rickenbacker 360 is an extremely comfortable guitar to play, delivers a wide range of sounds, and has very classy looks.

The original rectangular RIC case is included.
