Summary: Damn the torpedoes with this 2016 Rickenbacker 620/12.  The jangly tone fills out any mix and gives songs an ethereal choral feel that can’t be replicated with a pedal or overdub.  T This 620/12 sports Rickenbacker’s gorgeous Fireglo finish & sports a solid maple body with Rickenbacker’s signature chrome “R” tailpiece.  The bound maple neck features a rosewood board, triangle inlays, 21 frets, and a 24 ¾” scale.  One majorly distinctive detail is the setup of the tuning keys, which are arranged perpendicularly and staggered with the string wind on the higher octave strings set up similarly to a classical guitar.  This allows for increased clarity, especially on chords.  The Rickenbacker Hi-Gain pickups sound fantastic and are perfect for big shimmering chords.  It features Rickenbacker’s patented Rick-O-Sound, giving you both mono and stereo outputs.  From the Byrds to the Beatles to Tom Petty the iconic sound of Rickenbacker’s 12-string electrics have been all over many of our favorite recordings.
