Beautifully made guitar !

10.01.2016
I always wanted a Rickenbacker and waited 50 years to get one! I only play music at home for my own pleasure, as well as recording, but felt it was time to get a real Rickenbacker (I have a 6 string copy). Dealing with Thomann was excellent and delivery was fast and efficient. The guitar came in a very attractive flight case also.

The build and sound is excellent and I was very impressed with the feel and balance.

The only comment I would make is that the fret-board is quite narrow and takes a bit of getting used to - especially as there are 12 strings to play!

Rickenbacker 330 / 12FG

Wilfried N., 10.03.2011
The Rick is not an instrument like any other, it is not an all-round guitar and nothing for beginners or untrained. It is rather a cult instrument or collector's item - which does not mean that you can not play on it. It is also difficult to obtain as a used instrument and hardly cheaper than a new purchase. The price is almost two and a half thousand euros already violent and with the price should be a belt and a guitar cable still in it. Rick will definitely keep their value.

The sound is special and mostly for oldies (many Beatles songs, Byrds, Hollies etc.) - it is unbeatable! The design, pick up and the strange arrangement of the strings (first the deep, thick string, then the octave string) probably make the sound. The fingerboard is quite narrow for 12 strings, which makes grasping a bit more difficult (fortunately I have no paws). Very fast solos, bendings and similar. Are hardly possible here. The winding of new strings is also not so easy - here a capo provides me good services (clamping the strings). Also the arrangement of the mechanics is getting used to - at first I always turned to the wrong one - optically this looks very good, everything else gets used to.

There is nothing wrong with the processing of my Rick, it is a great looking instrument and a view on every stage. It is delivered in a very sturdy case with refined closures and enough space for non-items.
There is a tone and a volume control for each pick up, as well as a triple selector switch for bridge, neck and pick-ups. For the middle position (both pu's) there is still a rotary control to overlap the two pu's. The handling of the electronics makes no problems.

As a minus, I argue that for an instrument of this price class I would also like to get a detailed manual and tips and tricks for handling in German. They do not even exist on the Internet!

Finally, I would like to emphasize that despite deliberate deliberate deliberations, I have made a good assessment. If you already have a Strat and a Paula, but still want to have an exclusive instrument and make the right music, the Rick has certainly found the right instrument and money better than with some bank.
