This is a 1998 Rickenbacker 12 String Mapleglo 330 guitar. All the electronics and hardware are original and it comes with the original Rickenbacker case. The action is set up low, plays easily and has that Ricky 12 string chimey sound. Overall cosmetically it is in excellent condition with nice wood graining and is still very shiny as you can see from the photos. However, it does have an issue with the top right corner of the headstock where the Tunning keys meet the wood. At sometime in the past someone must have knocked into something causing a crack line in the wood as you can see in Pic # 10. Picture # 11 shows it doesn't go all the way through to the other side of the wood. Because the metal tunning shafts go both in and up on a 12 string, they seem to maintain the integrity of the area. The guitar can be tuned normally and it stays in tune. The previous owner told me he had bought it that way six years earlier and it had never given him any problems. I took it to Eric's Guitar Repair here in LA and he said because it still functions normally just to leave it alone. There are some minor laquer lines as seen in Pic # 12 and a few dings. This guitar is actually in really fine shape except for that one issue as mentioned above.
