A splendor for the eyes and ears

25.04.2016
Sumptuous: this is the word that comes to mind at the opening of the suitcase, when the Rickenbacker 330 in its natural finish (in maple wood) is shown to the open. This unusual aesthetic, in the spirit of art-deco more than claimed, is absolutely fascinating, especially in this natural finish, less typed than versions (magnificent, otherwise) Fireglo or Jetglo, inseparable from the famous names (from Pete Townshend To Peter Buck via Paul Weller and Susanna Hoffs) who popularized it. In all its colors, the Rickenbacker 330 is a pleasure for the eyes. But the Mapleglo is for me the pearl of the series.
As for the rest: plugged into my small amp Fender Superchamp XD, it is immediately extraordinary. The Byrdsian carillon arises as if by magic. The plated chords make you leave at the Marquee of 1965. But that one does not think that this guitar is only destined to the rock of the sixties. The Hi Gain pickups are able to bite and moan. Since the few days that I play on this guitar, I realize that it is almost good to do everything. If you are like me with sounds as diverse as My Bloody Valentine, Pale Saints, or Grizzly Bear, try this wonder and you will be stunned by what it can do.
I just tried it on my Marshall Bluesbreaker: a curious alliance at first. Well what a surprise! Do not believe his ears so beautiful.
As for the handle: some say it is too narrow. That is not my opinion. Although I do not have fairy fingers, I immediately found my bearings and I feel like home, as if I had never played on this instrument.
I think I found the way to the guitarist Wonderland.
