The Rickenbacker 600 series features a rather unique shape, even for Rickenbacker guitars - this is known as the distinctive "cresting wave" style shape, as opposed to the more traditional "Twin Crescent" cutaways. Although less popular than it's more famous relatives (such as the 330 and 360), the 620 manages to offer the same electronics sytstem as the 300 series, resulting in that exquisite Rickenbacker sound and style, but in a unique looking package.
Classic Rock & Roll sensibility
This excellent guitar comes complete with a Maple body and neck, high-gain single-coil pickups, rosewood fretboard with dot inlays, a lacquered black "Jetglo" finish, and those two output sockets (Standard and "Rick O Sound") that Rickenbacker are famous for.
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.
That Famous "Rick O Sound"
In addition to the excellent pickup circuitry, the 620 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!
