370 THINLINE DELUXE 12 STRING IN FIREGIO. VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. Manufactured in May of 1996.
Rickenbacker 370, 12-String Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar, Fireglo Finish. The Rickenbacker 300 series of Semi-Acoustic guitars is one of the most recognisable series of instruments in modern music, and has been gracing stages and studios worldwide since the late 1950s. The Rickenbacker 370 in particular has seen a great amount of success, with their famous 60's Britpop style "jangle", and was perhaps most famously played by Roger McGuinn (of The Byrds) on the hit track Mr Tambourine Man. RICKENBACKER'S MOST COMFORTABLE-TO-PLAY GUITAR. This Rickenbacker 370 is a 12-string, semi-acoustic guitar that comes complete with a Maple body and neck, Rosewood fretboard (with striking triangle fret inlays), a trio of high-output single coil pickups, traditional RIC "R" Tailpiece, a lacquered Redburst "Fireglo" finish, and those famous RIC twin output sockets (labeled Standard and Rick O Sound).
The Rickenbacker 370 has been constructed with the classic "Twin Crescent" cutaway shape, and has been continually improved over the decades. This light-weight, deluxe, semi-hollow dual cutaway design makes for a comfortable playing experience and grants you full access across the whole fretboard range. The sound produced by these pickups is perfect for those musicians hoping to recreate the jangly "Brit pop" sound that was prevalent in the 1960s. The high-output Single Coil pickups are designed along similar lines to the original Toaster Top pickups, only with a higher output that's more suited to today's musical needs. This knob has several different functions, such as acting as a tone blender between the pickups and as a general Bass & Treble EQ for the guitar.
A 12-string guitar produces a far richer tone than a standard six-string. The additional strings on the instrument are placed side-by-side with the traditional 6 strings, with only a narrow gap between them, and whilst the Top E and B strings are tuned in unison with their counterparts (essentially, doubling up), the 4 extra strings in the lower register are tuned to an octave higher than their own counterpart, making for a beautifully rich wash of sound even when playing the simplest of chords. Pickups: 3 x High-Output Single Coils. Output Types: Mono & Stereo "Rick O Sound".
