This Stunning pre-owned blonde, born in May 1997 is in perfect all round condition, with no blemishes anywhere. I can confidently say this is a mint example of this iconic guitar. The action is lower than most 6 strings & the ultra slim neck means that its pretty effortless to play & hold down the trickiest of barre chords. All electrics are original & work perfectly. She comes with original case, also in pristine condition. She retails at over £3,000 new, so really, whats there to think about! Grab her before she goes.

This is the guitar that broke the mould! The 360 was one of the first “different” guitar designs, and throughout the years Rickenbacker have continued to make exceedingly high quality instruments whilst innovating with their striking designs. The 360 became a stage and studio standard very quickly and remains a highly popular design years later; its legacy continued by legends such as Peter Buck from R.E.M.

The 360/12 Ric is of course a twelve string version of the classic axe. An early 360/12 forms a focal part of George Harrison’s guitar sound on the Beatles’ seminal Hard Days Night album. The lush chorus is instantly recognisable, also endorsed and used extensively by Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones etc, etc. The stylish 360 design makes this Ric one guitar that we’re certain will turn heads and continue to inspire musicians who play or hear it.

The 360 12 features hi gain pickups and an optional stereo output to bring a modern twist to the Ric sound.

The world’s most popular twelve string electric guitar boasts all of the deluxe features of its Model 360 cousin. A standard for recording for more than thirty years, its haunting, melodic chorus has continued to benefit from evolution. The slimmed and re-contoured neck now makes the 360/12 easier to play than ever.
