Note: this guitar has a small chip in the paint the back-painted trussrod cover where we accidentally caught the edge refitting after ajusting the trussrod - hence the reduction in price.
One of the great iconic guitars, these small body Rickenbackers were the rhythm sound of the Beatles and an instrument more evocative of the 60s you could not hope to find!
There are two basic models in this series: the 320 which has a short 22" scale neck, and the 350 with the same body but a full scale neck. Lennon's preference was the short scale model (technically he played the 325 model which added a vibrato over the 320) but they're a strange experience if you're used to a full scale, so the 350 is a good option if you're after that sound with a more familiar feel. Although they look like solid bodies, they're hollowed out like a 330 style Rickenbacker so they're nice and light.
Rickenbacker 'toaster' pickups are a wonderful and unique sounding pickup, very clear and slightly glassy sounding. Three pickup Rics are wired to give bridge / all three / neck & middle so they sound significantly different to two pickup versions, with the classic Ric bridge setting but a warmer, darker character to the other two positions these guitars over a 330 with toasters for example.
Based on the classic 325 Series guitars, this vintage stylization updates the traditional design to full scale size and performance. Vintage Single Coil Toaster Top™ pickups, solid black knobs, replica tuners, and trapeze tailpiece hark back to another era, but offers the feel and sound which modern day guitarists demand.
