As an authorised dealer of Rickenbacker International Corporation (RIC) guitars since, well, forever ago, our floorboards here at Guitar Village have always jangled with the iconic sound of Rickenbacker guitars in all of their guises, new, old, used and fresh off the stage. Rickenbacker have always provided an iconic soundtrack here at the shop and, famous for their appearance, feel and, of course, sound, the model diversification has provided the scope for players and collectors to delve deep into the history of instruments manufactured by this iconic Californian company.
Rickenbacker guitars remain synonymous with all types of classic modern and contemporary guitar music, the shop has always been pleased to offer for sale bass guitars and six string models and it has been extremely educational to hear and listen to player feedback over the years in terms of how Rickenbacker guitars have played an important part in the creation of classic tracks and recordings over the years, on so many superb releases. “Who” is your favourite Rickenbacker guitar player?
Let’s take a fleeting look at the Rickenbacker 330, an iconic model with its unique and highly recognisable, warm, well rounded and full sound. The tone on the 330 emanates from a full size body with a distinctive and fully functional sound hole contributing significantly to the overall sound presentation of the guitar. With its 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard accented with dot inlay fret markers and double body cutaways enabling access to all the frets on the neck. The output jack socket is monaural through a single jack plate.
And the classic 325 series, lets take a quick look at this model, an updated vintage vibe instrument back to traditional full scale size and performance. The iconic tone created by Vintage Single Coil Toaster Top pickups, replica tuners, ebony knobs and a trapeze tailpiece, all harking back to the vintage era with a sound and presence that contemporary players will respond to.
