Rickenbacker 330, 12-String Electric Guitar, Natural Mapleglo Finish

As part of arguably Rickenbacker's most recognisable model range (the 300 series), the 330 has been a mainstay on the popular music circuit since its introduction in the late 1950's, and is regularly associated with many key jangle-rock sounding guitar players from the 1960s and 1980s - including John Lennon, Paul Weller, Thom Yorke and Pete Townsend.

Classic Rickenbacker looks and sounds, with a gorgeous Mapleglo finish

This particular Rickenbacker 330 is the 12-string model, and features a Maple body and neck, Rosewood fretboard (with dots), and has gorgeous natural lacquered finish. All other appointments include the two High Output Rickenbacker single coil pickups, R tailpiece, teardrop scratchplate, and that awesome Blend control knob.

Traditional Body

The Rickenbacker 330 has been constructed with the classic Twin Crescent cutaway shape that has been largely unchanged since the late 1950s. This light-weight, 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 and 1980s.

Exquisite Electronics

The high-output Single Coil pickups are designed along similar lines to the original Toaster pickups, only with a higher output that's more suited to today's musical needs. In addition to each pickup have it's own Volume & Tone controls, there's a Blend control knob.

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. It's primary function though, is to act as a volume equaliser for the bass pickup, boosting the usually quieter pickup to be of a comparatively equal volume to its treble counterpart.

12 Strings

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.
