    I've lusted for this guitar since I first held one in a Palm Springs music store back in 1977. The shape, the balance, the looks and the history of Rickenbacker guitars had me dreaming of owning one for decades. Then about three years ago I played another one at the Dallas Guitar Show and made up my mind to get one. It still took me awhile, they're not cheap, but I finally own one and I'm thrilled! The feel and playability are unsurpassed and the looks are incredible! I'm the only guy in town that I know of that owns a Rickenbacker and I'm extremely proud of that fact. It now enjoys a place of honor in my music room next to my other guitars. The Rickenbacker era has begun at my house!

    First, I believe this to be a well-built guitar with a great sound. However, the one I received had some minor finish defects that made me dissatisfied. For some people, they may not have noticed these defects. However, I'm a craftsman, and it didn't take long for me to see subtle poolings of varnish and a couple of craters from a popped varnish bubble. If I'm going to pay this amount of money for a guitar, I do expect it to be perfect. It's a small surface area to be finished- it shouldn't have any defects. And it's USA made.

    I contacted Rickenbacker with detailed photos of this guitar, and someone got back to me quickly with concern and said management would get in touch with me. Well, they never did. Shame on you Rickenbacker, but thank you MF for your return policy.

            Comments about Rickenbacker 620 Electric Guitar:

            This instrument is absolutely awesome. It is a game changer and a unique, flexible guitar that every serious guitar player should consider. The design is curiously retro yet modern, its workmanship and finish are impeccable and the tones it produces are varied and unlike anything else you have played. The fretboard is narrow, but chording is effortless and smooth. It jumps out among other guitars and clearly and beautifully makes its presence known. Not all music genres will appreciate its mid-presence and chiming qualities, but for most pop-rock applications its a perfect blend of familiar ring and aggresive punch.

                    Every guitar player should own one Ric, one Les Paul, and one Strat. I'm a Fender guy but this little baby is a very cool guitar that I use on many Beatles tunes (both of my bands -- "Yesterday Today" and "The Accouting Crows" do an entire set of Fab Four tunes). Plays great, stays in tune, and is very comfortable.

                    Now the two guitars I bring to every gig are my go-to Strat Deluxe and the Ric. AND it is a beauty, I got the MapleGlo. Very solid construction.

                      I spend months researching and trying out guitars that were in this price range. IMO, this Rik is way better than anything else out there. It feels, looks, and sounds so good. No regrets whatsoever.

                      I went to the 2013 NAMM show and visited the Rickenbacker booth. A 620 Fireglo was on display, by itself. I could not take my eyes off it.

                      I recently joined a Hillbilly-Rock/Americana group in Bakersfield, California. I knew that the guitar would fit the bill. I already have a Tele with Hipshot B-bending system. Having the Rickenbacker gives the group a new dimension. All in all, purchasing the Rickenbacker 620 was one of the best decisions that I recently made.

                        Very underrated , as many have mentioned for only a few ducats more than the more popular California guitars you can have one of these excellent instruments.
                        I had a older 330 style a few years back, and while it was a great guitar I find that I'm more of a solid body guy, so when this popped up at a good price (suposedly used..I can't tell) I gladly sold my MIM Strat & Tele, and LP Faded. and bought this bad boy.

                        Many people think of this a a "pop" guitar, but this can rock as hard as any GIbby and twang like a Fender, and I often play Jazz on it! Sounds great thru my old Maganatone Starlighter, and my Marshall Lead 12..next asigment get the stereo rigged up. :-)
                        If you are the type that likes something "different" give this a a look, you will be better off with this than 3 or 4 lesser guitars.

                          I just purchased the Ricky maple-glo 620 and I am absolutely impressed by the finish, sound and playability. When I first opened the case, it surprised me that the guitar has a smaller thin maple body. This is not a bad thing if you are smaller or don't want a behemoth hanging around your neck all night. The guitar is also very well balanced while hanging from a strap. The neck is fast and with the dual truss rods that Ric uses, I doubt that the neck will move very much. I like the jangly sound from the pickups and the controls allowed me to dial in my sounds with ease. If you want to own a Ricky but are cash-challenged, this is the guitar to buy.

                              When I recived the guitar the first thing I noticed was the necks where warped,easy fix no problem.After that came the adjustment of sting height.Everything was going well untill it came to the 14-15-16th frets,there was no way to adjust the strings from stop fretting out.If I went to high I felt a guitar should not need to go almost an inch of the neck to stop the fret buzz.Anyway I am sure there are some 620,s that arrive perfect,I have a 330 I bought in 1997 and still have not touch a thing on it.I still think they are great guitars,but I sent this one back.
