Availability: OUT OF STOCK
Available to Order from our Suppliers
The 360/12C63 from Rickenbacker is an accurate replica of the guitar George Harrison made so famous during the 1960s. Complete with double-bound body, trapeze tailpiece, and unique Rickenbacker 12-string headstock, the 360/12C63 is true to the 1963 version in every aspect, even down to the shading on the Fireglo finish.
Created to exact original specifications of the world's most popular 12-string electric guitar
The natural chorus and chime of a Rickenbacker is a unique experience, one that's inspired generations of guitarists. Perhaps the most famous example is George Harrison, although the Byrds and The Edge are stiff competition.
The Rickenbacker 360 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. 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.
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.
That Famous "Rick O Sound"
In addition to the excellent pickup circuitry, the 360 Model also comes with two output jack sockets: one for the standard "mono" output, and a second labeled "Rick O Sound". This gives you the ability to hook the guitar up to two amps simultaneously, sending a single pickup signal to each, resulting in that famed jangly sound that has been the hallmark of Rickenbacker guitars for more than 50 years!
