Here’s what the customer has to say about his new guitar………….
“You have restored my faith in Rickenbacker and customer service. This is a jangle monster of a guitar.
Sonically speaking, unplugged It had that resonance when I first opened it in the office. I have a fair collection of guitars and a studio so I know that if it has a good sound unplugged it will be great plugged in.
Anyway, I looked at it all afternoon and picked it up in between work. Went home, had dinner, got the kids down and headed to the studio and plugged it into an old AC 15.
It was 9pm. I left at 2am.
This guitar is better than any other electric 12 string I have played. In truth I have owned a few and played many. I fell out of love with my old 330-12 but think my meddling with it in my twenties soured it. I had a lend of George replica (360/12v64) and it still sounded woolly to my ears. There is a particular gig I do when I need a 12 string. For the Jangle section I used a Yamaha Pacifica as it was more toppy and the semi acoustic nature(of the 360/12) I think takes away from it. Now I will burn the Yamaha as I am home. Back with a Ricky 12 that makes me glow. Mr. Hall needs more guys like you”.
