Vintage looks and classic jangly sounds are the heart and soul of Rickenbacker solid-body electric guitars. With over fifty years of music-making history behind them, these instruments take the art of guitar craftsmanship to a whole new level. When you're playing professionally and you want an instrument that surpasses all others, a Rickenbacker guitar is well worth the investment.

The amazing quality of Rickenbacker instruments was originally brought to light in the 1960s. That was the decade in which John Lennon went on the Ed Sullivan show toting a Rickenbacker 325 Capri, and it was also the beginning of an ongoing relationship with the Beatles - George Harrison recorded a number of tracks on the LP for "A Hard Day's Night" on a Rickenbacker guitar. In the years since then, the number of legendary bands trusting their sound to Rickenbacker only grew, coming to include groups like The Who, The Byrds, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Sloan and Cheap Trick.

When you set out to choose a Rickenbacker solid-body electric guitar, one of the first decisions to make is whether you'd like a 6-string or a 12-string. Rickenbacker is famous for both, so don't hold back! To go traditional with 6 strings, you can start by taking a look at the 350V63, 620 or 660 electric guitars. If you aspire to take your performance to new heights on a 12-string model, the 620/12 and 660/12 are the choices for you. Whichever style you decide to play, Rickenbacker is ready to accommodate.

There really is nothing quite like a Rickenbacker solid-body electric guitar. Since they built some of the Beatles' favorite instruments, it wouldn't be a stretch to say that Rickenbacker played an important role in music history. It's a role that they continue to fill today and - who knows - your band might be on track to become this generation's Beatles when you take the stage with a Rickenbacker guitar of your own.
