This is a great little 12 string, if you have large hands you will be better off with the 660/12 but for me the narrow fret board works well. very easy to play for a 12 string, doesn't kill my hands like other 12 strings, sound is fantastic, finish is flawless, USA made, a quality investment

This is guitar is barely a professional instrument. It is difficult to play, the truss rod cover causes severe tuning problems, the fingerboard is not natural wood finish - it's some kind of laminate, the frets are much too low, the bridge contraption is like something engineered by the 3 stooges, and the tuners are trash. It's really an awful instrument. Unfortunately, it does sound fantastic so if you want THAT sound, you probably have to put up with this. I can't. This guitar was given to me as a gift. Were that not the case I'd dump it in a second.

    Comments about Rickenbacker 620/12 12-String Guitar:

    \I purchased this guitar used, sight unsceen from musician's friend. It arived with a case, I opened it up and saw a guitar that is 100% perfect and it plays perfect. This is my first 12 string. It is not good for blues. I have to learn to play different. This is my 18th guitar, the quality is up there with the best.

    Wonderful guitar

    By RIC-man

    from Missouri

    Comments about Rickenbacker 620/12 12-String Guitar:

    This is an awsome little guitar, light weight awsome finish awesome sound, and it plays like dream. I have owned this guitar since 2004 and I love it, I played it with the 12 strings for a while but being a young musician my style changed and the 12 string sound was really wasn't the style I was looking for. So for the last year I havn't played it all that much, until last month my custom tele with gibson humbuckers did the job. I always dreeded restringing this guitar, and it was way over do so I only strung 6 strings and now its the only guitar I play, I absolutly love it. I did have to lower the action to compensate for the lesser tention of the 6 strings. Its awsome to know that if I need the 12 string sound it would only take a short while to fix back and I still have a guitar that I can play and enjoy until that time. My only gripe would be the neck is a little small for a 12 but if it had a larger neck it would not work to string it with 6 strings. So that complaint is not very deep. Also my guitar came with a slight 3 inch crack/check in the finish, right where your right arm rest. Its hard to see but it can be felt with your finger tips. I could have sent it back and I'm sure they would have fixed it but its so minior and so hidden that I just lived with it, gives it a little more personality. I love the sound I play all types of music and it really is flexable with the sound, even with metal it sounds very nice IMO.

    Ric 620/12 very red

    By Kenny Marks

    from California coast

    Comments about Rickenbacker 620/12 12-String Guitar:

    Lovely guitar, well made, but...that darn narrow neck is too tough on finger picking and spread cording, walk downs etc. just wish it was wider, i would keep the puppy forever! Great sound, so if you have tiny hands go 4 it!!

    Little bit of jingle for a jangle

    By Taco 146

    from Lakeville Minnesota

    Comments about Rickenbacker 620/12 12-String Guitar:

    Rickenbacker 620/12, what hasn't been said about the quality. When you find a formula that works and stick to it you will have a winner. This is what RIC is doing. I must say the Jetglo paint is fantastic. The sound is incredible. The only drawback is the narrow neck. This takes time to get used too. This the best sounding electric Twelve I have ever played.

    I opened the box, tuned instrument, and it played just like I had been playing it for years. I am very impressed with the set up from Musicians Friend. Thank you

    Heaven in a 12 string

    By zildjian player

    Comments about Rickenbacker 620/12 12-String Guitar:

    This guitar feels so comfortable in my hands and so smooth when I play even though I don't sound professional I look it and that's all that counts and besides the honeys can't resist me now on a scale from 1 to 10 I give it a 10 for getting me laid 3 out of 20 concerts I played at. Thank you.

    Awesome Guitar worth the wait

    By Senorita Rock-n-Rollita

    from El Paso, Texas

    Comments about Rickenbacker 620/12 12-String Guitar:

    The narrow neck of the guitar takes some getting used to, but well worth the trouble. It is amazing how six extra strings enhances rythm guitar and the closeness of the strings makes this an easy lead guitar, as well. The action in very low and fast. And I love the dual plug-in of standard and Rick-o-sound (personally I play it on Rick-o-sound). I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone interested in a twelve string that doesn't mind guitars with a smaller neck. The only thing bad about this guitar is the wait time.
