I purchased this guitar new in May 1998. It is extremely beautiful, versatile, and unusual. The pictures below display the beauty. This guitar has two pickup systems. In addition to the two passive Rickenbacker humbuckers at the bridge and neck, there are active electronics boosting six saddle mounted piezo pickups. The humbuckers are dead quiet and great for recording. To my ear they have a sound similar to the Gibson ES-335 although it’s really a nice sound all their own.


The piezo system is a bright acoustic electric sound that works great when you need that sound. The fifth knob on the 380L is a blend knob that lets you mix the humbucker with the piezo sounds opening up endless tonal possibilities. The two output jacks on the 380L correspond to the two pick up systems so you can send the humbuckers and the piezos into completely different signal chains or amplifiers if you choose. Versatile. Like having two great guitars.


The 380L neck and fretboard are unusual for Rickenbacker. The neck is wider than the regular Rickenbacker neck.  The maple fretboard is very fast and smooth under the fingers and the
back of the neck is very comfortable to the heel of the hand and under the thumb. The access to the high notes is very easy and natural. I've played Gibsons all my life and while I always admired the Rickenbacker sound and looks, I’ve never really liked their narrow necks. Of course that's not a problem on the 380Ls wider neck. The guitar has recently been set up and the neck is straight and the intonation is true.
