What We Say

We don't get many 660s and this week we've had two turn up at once, so forgive our exited babbling!

The 660 is a particularly cool and often overlooked model in the Ric line. Based on the popular 620 model, you get some nice upgrades in terms of the bright, jangly toaster pickups rather than the gruntier hi gains on the 620, and vintage appointments such the checquerboard binding and back painted gold pickguard and trussrod cover make it a particularly bonny guitar. This particular one also has some really nice figure in the maple, and it's hard to go wrong with Fireglo as a finish option. 

Another feature of the 660 that makes them appealing to the larger handed would be Ric enthusists is the neck is considerably larger than most models, so if your objection to Rics is the rather tight nut width of the standard models a 660 might be the ticket.

To sum up then, it's beautiful, it sounds amazing and it's easy to play - how can you say no? 

What They Say

The Model 660 and 660/12 feature a charactered Maple cutaway body based on an innovative design from the 1950's. A Rosewood fingerboard is punctuated beautifully with triangular pearloid inlay markers, while the maple double bound neck and body are solid through and through. Rickenbacker's trademark "checkered" black and white binding set off the body, while white binding graces the neck. The 660 is electronically engineered to the exacting standards of the vintage reissue series, complete with Rickenbacker's own vintage reissue-type pickups.
