'67 335 and pal.
Evening sirs ! I've just bought this off the Bay. When I first got it out of the case and noticed that the strings were way off being straight on the neck...and it played rubbish my heart sank.....it was then that I noticed that the bridge was on backwards !!?? So a quick fix and set up and its lush.However...I do not likey the fact that the two volumes have an impact on each other. I just want neck pickup...neck and bridge...and bridge. Anyone tweaked and modded the wiring on their Ric ? I don't want to lose the sound....but I'm very much a volume 'fiddle' player and want a basic 3 way ....maybe even with a treble cap on the neck pickup ?
I recently got this modded 2004 360 to complement the Midnight Blue 330 that I got last year. The previous owner put in the TV Jones pickups and swapped out the original tailpiece for the vibrato tailpiece you see here.
Lefty Rics just look SO odd to me... more so than any other guitar ever.
That being said, damn that is oddly sweet.
360-12 w/custom wound pickups, .0047 vintage crisp cap and re-cut nut (Doc Arnquist mods) and 325C64
ha ha, thanks
I've had this one about 9 months, for some reason it never made it into the club. 620 in Midnight Blue.
What do you guys think about the Rickenbacker 1997 Reissue with the F Hole
I’m super stoked to be a part of this club! I just picked up a 2012 360/6. I’ve played it a bunch and got through the initial RIC initiation period of adapting to the neck - didn’t take too long.
I just love the way crunchy rhythm tones sound on this bad boy. The struggles with playing lead are real due to the low fret height, but the tone is rewarding and worth the effort.
So who else is using a RIC for lead playing primarily. Any tips?
Beautiful. Works of art. Quirky but terrific. Welcome to the Ric club. Tend to pick mine when I’m not playing solos but don’t have a problem with it. I mostly play my 12 ric. The 6 is for just when I feel like it.
Uh oh... that’s not good! I heard this is common. Those tail pieces are kind of a pain.
At least on mine it was the cheap half. When the other half breaks it costs a pretty penny.
Just acquired this beautiful oddity. Love it!!
Forgot to add, its a 480. A bolt on neck, which is unusual for Ricks, but it gives it some extra twang and snap. Otherwise, it sounds like a Rickenbacker - the high-gains sound like high-gains!
Is the fingerboard completely flat, or just a very, very large radius?
I think it’s very large radius. To me, it feels more playable straight off than others Rick’s I’ve tried. Otherwise the neck is normal Rick - low frets, varnished thigh not too heavily and a tad narrow feeling at the headstock end.
My re-issues. '90 1997, '97 4001V63 and '89 36012V64. The amp is my 1968 Transonic bass.
My first Rick, a
'65 365. The amp is my brother's '67 Vox Beatle.
