        Nice! I wouldn't change my Ric 360 for the world, but it's nice to see people modifying Rics, not something you see every day. Good to hear its sounding how you want it to!

            if i had the 360, then the blend knob would actually work properly. alas, mono output neuters it's capability making it redundant.

                    Funny...I acquired my current 360 in a trade for a 330. I couldn't bond with the 330, and now I'm stuck with a 360 I'm not crazy about. All of this has led me to conclude that the problem isn't Rickenbacker guitars, but me. I just don't dig 'em

                        i've done two things in the past year that really made mine come alive. the first was going from 10s to 11s. now this mod. the combination has transformed an instrument that i was dissatisfied with because it seemed like it should be better than it was. well, now it is.

                            I have a 650 that needed some wiring help as well. I found the mini-hums were a bit muddy, middy and indistinct. I wired the tone pots as spin-a-splits, changed the bridge volume to a blend and the neck volume to a master volume and couldn't be happier. Now I can dial in pretty much everything I need from bright and jangly to balls out rock/metal. They are great instruments but may need seasoning to taste.
