You are looking at a Rickenbacker 1993Plus 12-String Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Fireglo, serial number 1527756. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 3.2 oz.)

Since the early days of his career in the '60s to today, world-renowned guitarist Pete Townshend of the legendary English rock band The Who can been seen wielding a wide range of guitars--and a good portion of those instruments consist of various Rickenbacker models. Of all the Rickenbacker models he's played throughout his extensive career, one of his favorite and most widely recognized Rick models was his 1993. A beautiful instrument with a rich history, the original design of the 1993 was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the '60s. Today, at Townshend's request, Rickenbacker has brought back and updated his beloved 1993 model. Introducing the Rickenbacker 1993Plus, this modern classic now boasts an 1/8" wider neck, a beautiful Caribbean rosewood fretboard and a more stable two-piece neck design featuring a round heel for added comfort.

The 1993Plus sports a classic sharp double-cut semi-hollow body made from maple, and features a violin-style F-hole along with X-bracing to deliver that time-tested Rick tone with superior projection, resonance and clarity. Catering to the deluxe aesthetic, the 1993Plus showcases double body binding, Triangle pearlescent fingerboard inlays, neck binding and an old-school Fireglo finish.

That gorgeous old-school Rick 12-string chime and jangle is ensured by a trio of reissue Toaster Top single-coil pickups while vintage control knobs, a '64-style trapeze tailpiece and deluxe vintage reproduction tuning machines add to the vintage styling of the 1993Plus.

The Rickenbacker 1993Plus is a real beauty--you definitely won't want to smash this one! Comes complete with a hardshell case.

Best Uses

  • Rhythm
  • Vintage Leads

Rickenbacker 12 strings normal neck widths are little narrow for wide fingers. The 1993/12 Plus has a slightly wider neck which makes all the difference in the world for playability. I'm so happy with it I'm going to order the 660/12. If you play The Beatle, Who, Tom Petty, REM this is a must have. The sound is so full and with the Ricko-sound outputs for stereo is amazing live or in the studio.
