UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, well-rounded: grip really easy! The agreements place easily and naturally, even barred. Access to the treble last string is easy, though, on a twelve-string, this is not much use. I have been 10/10 for its use, but I think the double strings are very very slightly too close to each other (with fingers moderately large, slightly curl the strings (the open strings...…

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice, well-rounded: grip really easy! The agreements place easily and naturally, even barred. Access to the treble last string is easy, though, on a twelve-string, this is not much use. I have been 10/10 for its use, but I think the double strings are very very slightly too close to each other (with fingers moderately large, slightly curl the strings (the open strings affect fingers on handle)), which require an adjustment period.

SOUNDS

Sound very 60's without effect, perfect for playing Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Animals, etc.. However, I recommend to play on a tube amp (I play a Fender Vaporizer), purchasing a Equalizer pedal to give a little more treble it, and a little more shut. But that is a matter of taste.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost three months, in a somewhat sporadic: it's a guitar that used to accompany me as playing solo. It is a heart stroke guitar: since I started playing guitar, I wanted to acquire a Rickenbacker. This is really great. And then a quality / great price. If you can get one: Do not think!

Rickenbacker 330/12Published on 09/03/09 at 07:00
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
A Rickenbacker, American as it should, with two single pickups, a bridge in "R", two volumes, two tones, a dial and a knob which I think he mixes the two microphones. The handle is stuck. I have not counted the frets, I do not care a bit (see the website of the brand for this)

UTILIZATION

We know that the handle of these guitars is a difficult game. That's true. The difference between the pairs of strings is thin. We must therefore apply to play with precision and without slippage. Treble, frankly, who cares a little, spent 10/12ème box, the guitar has no great interest. It is played mainly in cuffs with beautiful full chords and delicate arpeggios. Ergonomics are good, the guitar...…

UTILIZATION

We know that the handle of these guitars is a difficult game. That's true. The difference between the pairs of strings is thin. We must therefore apply to play with precision and without slippage. Treble, frankly, who cares a little, spent 10/12ème box, the guitar has no great interest. It is played mainly in cuffs with beautiful full chords and delicate arpeggios. Ergonomics are good, the guitar is light, you can play longer without getting tired. The production is exemplary except for one thing. Originally, the strings of E, A, D, G are first mounted so that it is more pleasant and sound to attack by the high strings. So I did change the bridge. The sound, the sound and well put there to be roughly two. A fairly full and the other a bit garish. And the whole issue is finding a balance. Then you do not touch any more. It Scratch'n and come back in 1966. So much a journey back in time as a guitar. A two in one somehow.

SOUNDS

I use it for folk-rock arpeggios and chord pop a few doublings. It's very pretty. Of course, you must love this sound very sixties (Beatles, Byrds, etc.). I use it with a very clear (Epiphone Valve Junior Orange and HP 12). Before that, I passed through a Boss ME 50 I press on which a large enough reverb, tremolo and delay slapback discreet. I get the reference sound. I do not look for originality but I'm thrilled.

OVERALL OPINION

I for one year. This is not my main guitar. I play as needed. What I like most is that I voulais.Ce I like least is that I waited 30 years for this. I tried the 320/12 and 360/12. Frankly, what I am doing it, which is entry level, is sufficient. I bought 1500 euros to a musician who got rid of them. Good deal for the Rickenbacker are rare. And if unfortunately it disappeared, I was struggling severely to find another.
