Summary: The Rickenbacker 360/12. With its rounded horns, contoured top edge that rolls into back binding, innovative solid/slotted headstock design, and iconic shark fin fingerboard inlays, there is no mistaking it for anything else. And then there’s the sound: from the Beatles to the Byrds, you’ve heard that unmistakable jangle on countless classic recordings. This venerable 12-string semi-hollowbody electric guitar has seen changes in the ensuing half-century, and today’s model is more playable and awesome-sounding than ever. One of the coolest upgrades is the Rick-O-Sound parallel-mono output that sends each of the vintage-inspired High Gain pickups to its own amplifier, or straight into a recording medium for instant stereo guitar. The Rick 360/12 was beloved by artists such as George Harrison and Roger McGuinn for its shimmering chord voicings, and all of us here at Empire Guitars are sure contemporary players will savor its inimitable tone as well.
