Traditionalists and modern players alike will appreciate the classic Rickenbacker 330 semi-acoustic.

For that classic Ric tone, the 330 comes loaded with a pair of Hi-Gain pickups that are routed through a traditional Rickenbacker control complement and a mono output jack. A set of chrome Schaller tuners, a 6-saddle bridge, and an instantly recognizable 'R' tailpiece round out the hardware. The Rickenbacker 330 comes protected by a hardshell case.

I own several electric guitars, and I have to say this is the one that I play more than all the others combined! It has a nicely balanced body, solid tuners, and fantastic sound played either clean or overdriven on these bright single-coil pick-ups. I bought my jetglo 6-string new in 2004 and have found it is built like a rock -- totally dependable even after I have dropped it (twice). It is American-made quality and 100% worth the price. I hope to get a 12-string Rickenbacker 620 some time soon to cover what this guitar can't do.

"When the Beatles were the rage, I was too young to differentiate between instrument brands. McCartney had that funny, viola-esque 4-string thing, that I would later know as a Hofner bass, and similarly, George Harrison's Gretsch (that he didn't play all that well). But that oddly appealing guitar handled by John Lennon had a sense of mystery and familiarity. The classic Rick--as its patented Rick-O-Sound--has been in the limelight and adorning the grooves of vinyl and lasers for a long time. Rickenbacker has been known for its clean, hi-cut brilliance and deliciously crisp chord crunches. Like who use it, Rick is not your everyday slice o' guitar pie. Not everyone was fond of the Rick sound, but the artists who played them certainly were as unique as their guitars. Great for wailing out a sweet lick, but its real value shines among rhythm guitarists. Back in the 70's, the squeaky-clean chomps of ""Go All The Way"" and piercing E-C#m-A-B progression of ""I Wanna Be With You,"" it was clear that the Raspberries relied on the Rick for clarity. This was no run of the mill LesPaul sound. And Tom Petty's slightly-dissonant singing style was smoothed out with the musical superiority of, what else, a Rick. In the era of the Strat, when everyone seemed to break out the same overused licks... WEET-DIDDLY-WEET... and DAIRO-DAIR-DOW-DA-DAIRO.... amid a glut of sound-alikes, every so often, you'd come across an artist with an indiscernable ""something"" attributable to the Rick. On today's charts, you may actually find someone playing a conventional instrument rather than a keyboard sample, and if the sound has an unusually appealing warmth, it could be Ricks in the mix. I got my first back in '76, and haven't found one like. It was like the 4001 bass, with the extended upper cutaway, only with 6 strings. Don't know why I ever sold it, but I've regretted it ever since. Now, I just got my 330, one of the classic designs, and once again, I'm a happy Rick-O-Camper. For those with more ecclectic styles, there's an entirely new line of Ricks with bolder visual appeal, but the same superior sound and integrity of its name. If you consider yourself an unusual artist, why play a Strat like everyone else? Consider a Rick 330, an unusual choice, for those with discerning tastes. "
