  • 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.)

        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.

                        Here she is in my living room:


                        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.
