Up for sale, a 2007 Rickenbacker 330/12 in exceptional, near mint condition and in perfect working order. This particularly clean Ric boasts a highly figured maple body, with faint birdseye and prominent quilt figuring across the body horns, as well as a wide, prominent grain pattern, highlighted by the gloss nitro lacquer finish. Complete with the original leather Rickenbacker strap, polish cloth, manual, and minty hardshell case, this 330/12 is a showroom clean example which has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar.

The tone is crystal clear, and sparkles with top end sweetness and chime that is quintessential Rickenbacker. The hollow maple body with neck through construction gives the 330/12 a sustain, immediate attack and richness found with few 12 string designs, and it's no wonder that top players of the British Invasion and folk boom of the 1960s gravitated towards Rickenbacker for their top notch construction and tone. Equipped with a simple mono 1/4" jack, this 330/12 has straightforward Volume and Tone controls for each pickup, with the smaller fifth knob blending in the right amount of low end when in the middle position. Weighing 8lbs 6oz, this guitar is easy on the back too!

The neck has a full and substantial C profile that borders on the chunky side of things and feels very solid, filling the palm comfortably and fretting easily. The 1 5/8" nut width allows for ideal string spacing, and the original frets are virtually unplayed, with well rounded crowns and only the lightest hint of wear in the first position. The lacquered rosewood fretboard boasts dot inlay. On the headstock, the Schaller tuning machines work as they should and hold pitch well, with near perfect chrome plating. Both truss rods are responsive and the original "Rickenbacker" truss rod cover/logo is present.

All of the electronics work as they should, and everything is exactly how it was when the guitar left the Rickenbacker factory. The chrome "R" tailpiece and six saddle bridge with original cover is intact and the chrome plating is clean as can be, shining like new. The stock knobs also have minty chrome caps and the pickup covers are also practically perfect. Cosmetically, this is truly a near mint instrument and a particularly nice example of a model that has defined the Rickenbacker company for decades. This guitar has clearly spent most of its life in the case, and we can't find a scratch on it, although we'll conservatively call the guitar "near mint."

The original hardshell case, manual, polish cloth, and Rickenbacker leather strap are included.
