You are looking at a Rickenbacker 381/12V69 12-String Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar Mapleglo, serial number 1531797. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 8.5 oz.)

A fitting member to the Vintage Series instruments, the 381/12V69 offers a premium, old-school RIC vibe plus all of that legendary tone and 12-string jangle that Rickenbacker is famous for. Based on a design that can be traced back to 1957, the 381/12V69 comes with all of those distinctive appointments that made this late '50s Rickenbacker model stand out.

Holding true to the original, the 381/12V69 sports that famed deep double-cutaway semi-hollow body that features a distinctive hand-carved arch top and back. For striking vintage looks and a classic sound to match, the body is crafted from only the finest 'charactered' maple while the 'checked' body binding and a single bound crescent soundhole add to the authentic Rickenbacker aesthetic. The maple neck lays beneath a bound rosewood fingerboard that houses 21 frets and RIC's signature Triangle inlays.

Delivering all of that time-tested Rickenbacker tone and classic 12-string shimmer, the 381/12V69 comes fitted with a pair of Vintage Single Coil Toaster Top pickups. The electronics consist of a 5-knob control layout  as well as Mono and Stereo output jacks. A 12-saddle bridge, an "R" tailpiece, and a set of Deluxe Vintage tuning machines round out this traditionally-appointed reissue. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
