    Seriously beautiful made in USA guitar. Fit and finish on my Fire Glow excellent. Other than on the owners warrenty card I could not a serial number on the guitar anyplace. Sounds excellent through or without amp. If I only had to keep one guitar, the RIcky might be the one.
    Slimeline hollw body 2 single coil pickup guitar perfect for Byrds,CCR, Petty, Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakum or any such folk rock country music you may play. Carved from a single piece of maple with a fitted maple top and neck with rosewood fret board. I think this fits better in your lap and less prone to slide off than the rounded edge body of the 360.
    The tone knobs are on the top and volume knobs on bottom, reverse of most guitar electronics. No buzz, no hiss, wiring fine. Everything perfect. Lowered action about 1/32 inch or 1-2 mm and put 9s on mine. Use pure nickle strings for incredible single coil jangle and use 9 strings for some extra twang..
    no buyers remorse, a real keeper and value improves with age. Ricky's seem to hold on to resale value. Compared to a new gibby 335, this has some serious bang for the buck and should be on everyones contender list for those wanting a hollow body electric.

      Comments about Rickenbacker 330 Electric Guitar:

      There has been more than one time I have played my 330 without having plugged it in to an amplifier - that is how good the sound is on this guitar. The one I own is a red fire glow but when you turn it over, the backside is half fireglow/sunburst and half tiger stripe (see photo). This may have been a mistake on the part of the manufacturer but it DOES make it a very unique and maybe even one-of-a-kind guitar.

        Comments about Rickenbacker 330 Electric Guitar:

        I always wanted to own a genuine Rick and the
        price was right so I invested and was not
        dissappointed.
        The shipping was fast and I was pleasantly
        surprised at the almost new condition the guitar
        arrived in...almost no signs of play wear and
        exceptionally clean for a "level 2, gently used"
        guitar.
        After a few tweaks (action adjustment), I
        plugged it into my Vox AC4 and hit the opening
        chord to "Hard days' Night"...sweet!
        It sounded just like a Ric should sound.
        I like the blend knob for mixing the pups'
        output and the fast smooth feel of the neck
        finish.

        Comments about Rickenbacker 330 Electric Guitar:

        Love this guitar. I played Gibson SG, Fender Tele and Hofner President for many years both professionally and for fun but this sounds very different. Beautiful rich warm tone, excellent craftsmanship, looks cool, superb playability.
        If you buy one new I would recommend a professional set up, maybe an hour at most, just to set up the neck and intonation. This guitar has dual truss rods which is great for rigidity but needs thought before doing an adjustment.

            Excellent quality, absolutely no flaws. Set up was nearly perfect right out of the case. Fifty years of playing mostly Fenders, now this is my favorite electric guitar. The tone blender for using both pickups allows amazing tone shaping. Very versatile, a joy to play.

            Rock'N'Roll

            Comments about Rickenbacker 330 Electric Guitar:

            Let me start by saying I've wanted a Rickenbacker guitar since I was 17, ever since I saw Tom Gabel from Against Me! with his Rickenbacker 360. This was 7 years ago before that band turned into pop ballad playing sellouts. 7 years later, while not the 360 of my teenage dreams, this Mapleglo 330 was all that and more! I just could NOT walk away from this guitar. It still has the crazy looks, it still sounds AWESOME shredding folk-punk like a maniac on it, and it still brings me an IMMENSE level of joy to say I own a Rickenbacker. All my guitar buddies HATE me because I own this guitar and they don't. No joke. I could NOT be happier with this guitar. Nothing even comes close to this. I thought about a Casino because its more budget friendly and still an amazing guitar, but I would still want the Ric eventually anyway, so I went and cut the middle man and went straight to the Rickenbacker. Greatest decision ever. This is the guitar that revived my passion for playing music!
            Maplego is GORGEOUS in person. Just absolutely STUNNING! The single coil pickups? AWESOME. From beautiful cleans to blistering punk blasting distortion, and all in STYLE! The whole shape and look of this guitar commands serious respect. To own one is to be a part of a special level of players who have to have a certain look to meet their certain style.
            Just hold one. I did. I played it and played it, tried talking myself out of it because of the price tag, but alas, IT JUST FEELS SO GOOD, I walked out of there that day with it. Actually did get a great deal on it, used, and WITH the Ric hardshell case included for about $1600 all together. Everything comes together with the American quality of this guitar, right down to the smallest detail, you won't be dissappointed!
            Like I said before, I got a really great deal. Its not often you see a Ric IN PERSON for that kind of price AND with the hardshell case thrown in.

            A True Classic

            By Chris Jackson

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Rickenbacker 330 Electric Guitar:

            This is my third Rickenbacker (2nd 330) since 1991. Extremely well crafted, Great value for an American made guitar. You can't go wrong.

            Might switch high gains for toaster pups which tend to be a little brighter/fuller.

            On a side note: The first 330 Musicians Friend sent was damaged, small crack near neck pickup. Looked like a factory error. MF replaced it quickly, great customer service! Second one arrived in perfect condition.
