  • Impending NGD: '92 Rickenbacker 360

    I'm about to lose my damn mind waiting on the UPS man to get here with my new (to me) Rickenbacker 360. Black hardware, black binding, Mapleglo. A gorgeous piece of wood.




    Lots of pictures at the original listing at Olivia's Vintage. Their listing says it's a 1991, the Rickenbacker Register says it's from 4/92, but what's a few months between friends?

    (Yes, I know the action is ridiculously high in the pictures. I called and spoke with their tech before I bought it. It was set up for slide when it came in, and the pictures were taken before their tech set it up.)
    My gear: '92 Rickenbacker 360 Mapleglo BT, '11 Ric 620 Fireglo, '09 Tele Deluxe RI w/ Curtis Novak WRHBs, '10 American Special Strat, Vox AC15, ten fingers.

        I've never been into the Rick's bodyshape. Their basses are a whole different story, though...

                  That guitar is fine looking, even by Ric standards! Congrats!

                    It plays like a dream. And sounds really, really huge through my AC15. Man. I think this might be the one -- I wanted it to be. That's why I sold so much stuff to buy it. I've always wanted a 360, and now that I have this one, I'll never be without one again.

                      Okay, so stop playing and start taking pictures ...

                        Back to playing. The Olivia's listing page has lots of super-close-up pictures from before I bought it.

                        Fun fact: this is the first guitar I've had with Schaller tuners old enough to say "Made in W. Germany".

                          Oh yeah. Ric and an AC15! Jackpot.

                          That's a beautiful Ric. Rather unusual to get black instead of white for the pickguard and accents. Looks great. Enjoy!

                            Yeah, that's mostly a 1985 to 1995 thing on the guitars. They've been doing it on the bass side of things forever, but they didn't make a whole lot of guitars with the black trim and hardware -- at least, they didn't make them that way for very long. White trim and silver hardware is a lot more prevalent.
