Rickenbacker 370/12
Manufacturing exclusively US. The dlais manufacturing are long, sometimes trs long for those who control their instruments directly to the factory. The finish is impeccable.

Channel in al stocky, body idem (mine is finishing Mapleglo is to say natural ... it is divine! The Saddle chosen is beautiful, glossy varnish wish), varnished rosewood fingerboard . For most of the technical specifications you can refer to manufacturer.

The 370 has a microphone configuration 3: CHARACTERISTICS are identical to those of the 360, just the mic in intermdiaire +. The standard configuration of Team Hi-Gain pickups, mine are Vintages (Toasters: actually it looks like mini toaster), only slightly less powerful given the impdance.

The action is low trs trs .... intonation is adjustable by 6 bridges (we all prfrerait 12 bridges of the same for a twelve string, but 6 of SERIES! However, we can get a 12 and the installation does not seem well mchante).

5 knobs: 2 volume and 2 tone knobs plus a 5th to feature multiple configurations depending on the volume buttons and Tone. On the 370, the neck pickup and intermdiaires are routed together: the first volume and then act on it 1st Tone.

Slecteur 3 positions: Either the two microphones intermdiaire handle and either the 3 pickups together, or the bridge pickup.

I put 9 because, pure, they could deliver 12 bridges in SERIES I cassearais least head for the intonation, and also (why not?) Slecteur propose a "strato" 5 positions (but it would probably be a true sacrilge !)...


Early playing time is extremely surprising because the handle is very strait, and when I say it's really REALLY strait strait! I do not have big fingers, but manipulate the 12-string correctly on such a short space of time requires a non adptation ngligeable. On other models with wider sleeves are available at Rickenbacker (SERIES 600) and may be worth it once to try ... to find a condition! For it is not an easy task. Now that I'm used to I feel that my Start has a standard round! That is to say ..

The handle end is not particulirement nor quick ... but on this point I admit it hard to judge, my 1st real guitar as a Start to the handle end and quite fast. CHAC is the acute total weight is trs correct (important as many months a Start), and 12 are effective mcaniques Schaller. Changing strings is no problem.

I had heard that the 3rd of 370 micro GNER was the game It's not my opinion: whether in picking or finger picking, the third microphone is forgotten.

I put 9 in the handle.

If you get a good sound easy?! Ah the beautiful question! you get a sound which I think is awesome! but we will see a further ...


I tried a 330 dj o the era I bought my Start, but the 330 silent too expensive for my meager means. Today, it is not a ncessairement rve I couraging since I never really fantasized about Rickenbacker. That said, the sound of this guitar is just wonderful. The 12 strings are clear of an incredible purity, and plugs into a good distortion I find poustouflante. Although sr, no fat and heavy, but a dynamic and, above all, the harmonies that put on the ass.

In my humble opinion, these guitars are worth more than the reputable guitar rhythm to them gnralement award. I did not test configuration 6 strings (because, as I followed the advice of several users Aviss I prfr make a switch 12 for 6 and 12 strings), but I poustoufl by the sounds that I can draw from these sticks. Branch in flanger, phaser or a chorus, or a vibrato etc ... or a time, and even better, with nothing, the sound is LLU-HA-CI-NANT! !

When I think the youth of this beautiful stocky, which will improve with age, I melt ...

PS: I m'clate in particular with the use AdrenaLinn: the sound of 12 strings perfectly agree with the filters, modulations, effects and the small yellow bote ... but , a, ct is my hacker and not rvrencieux emerges.

I put 15 for the "tone" ... ah ... well ... ... there's no place that I really 10?!


I wonder now how I have not reached this guitar more than tt. This is not a versatile instrument (in this genre or the Parker Vigier are much better), but I agree with other opinions dposs the site to say he has a mouth and a his belonging that him.

These guitars are hard to find trs. Although sr, we can not really say that Rickenbacker is a registered confidential, but when you live prs of 800 terminals of the Rue de Douai, Paris City, I can tell you that you can brush. Franais prices, moreover, are years Lumire prices USD. Rickenbacker does not accept that resellers Yankee expdient their instruments outside the United States, but looking good! with a little persvrance, there is! if so!

I put 10 because the notice despite the global default (too round and too strait bomb), the sounds are divine, making forgive many things. I must say that I really care to have the ergonomics perfect instrument, the handle and lightweight Highway: I do not scne!

So you can go there with eyes closed: at best you will be conquered, and at worst it will just adapt your game to the CHARACTERISTICS of the instrument. It does not hurt to change your horizon right?

PS: I redraw the opinion a few months, when it will be a little older and I have a little test in 6 and 12 strings.
