Summary: Few sounds are more evocative of the classic period of popular rock than the electric jangle of the Rickenbacker 12-string.

Body: Semi-hollowbody, double cutaway. This guitar has a maple body with a maple neck & a rosewood fingerboard.

Neck: Solid maple through-body neck. 24 3/4'' scale. 1.63'' nut width and a 1.931" width at the 12th fret. Lacquered rosewood fretboard with triangle inlays. Half-slot style headstock. Large white truss rod cover with “Rickenbacker” logo.

Pickups/Hardware: "High gain” pickups. Adjustable bridge with 6 string saddles, cover and trapeze tailpiece. Schaller tuning machines. Three-way pickup selector. Two volume and two tone controls, plus one pickup volume equalization control. Two-tiered white pickguard/control plate.

Cosmetics: This instrument has been well taken care of and loved in it's 27 year lifespan - there are a few dings & scuffs on this guitar, all consistent with a guitar that has been played & loved. There isn't much buckle scratch, although I do see some light scratches on the back of the instrument. The binding looks great but there are a few small cracks in the binding but nothing that is concerning and nothing structural. The top of the guitar looks perfect from a distance but once you hold this instrument in your hands you can find a few dings & imperfections but overall this Rickenbacker is in very good condition. The nut on this instrument has been changed at sometime in the past and this instrument is strung up like a traditional 12-string with the bass strings on the bottom of the pair.

Playability: This guitar plays great - the action is super low & the guitar still plays with no dead spots & very little buzzing.

Weight: 7 lbs, 13 oz.

Case: Original hard shell Rickenbacker case
