RICKENBACKER 360 12 STRING FIREGLOW 1988
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2007-11-19)
Price : US $1,110.
This is a used Fireglow Rick 360 12-String with original case. I bought it in 1989 from a guitar tech who got it new in '88. I later had him modify the nut & bridge to reverse the octave strings so the high octave is on top. This is how every other brand of 12-string is strung, I don't know why Rick puts the low octave on top. Anyway it sounds much brighter since he switched them. With the Pyramid Flat-wound strings it plays great and the strings last forever if you just wipe them with alcohol sometimes.
It's not a mint condition guitar. There are 2 chips on the headstock (visible in one picture), back of the neck, and one near the output jacks. I wasn't very careful with the beltbuckle so it's not perfect by any stretch. The case is mint on the inside but the outside is pretty worked over. The latches are in perfect working order so it's quite functional. Still have the keys for the lock. Also comes with a guitar strap that snaps into those odd shaped Rick pegs
More of a players' guitar than a collectors item. It definitely is easier to play than other Rick 12's I've known. I'm only selling it because it hasn't been used since I got out of the 60's band 4 years ago. Gonna miss it but can't stand to see it sitting there in the closet.
I'll start it at $250. Happy bidding.
