"I bought my first Rickenbacker in about 1980. I love the tone. I love the history, knowing that Roger McGuinn and George Harrison and Pete Townshend also played Rickenbackers. That one got stolen eventually, I think in 1981, when I was doing a show for $100. So we went to a tiny little guitar shop and pulled a Rickenbacker out of a box. It was in tune. I played it, it sounded great, and it's the one I've used on every single record I've ever made. I've played it on stage my entire adult life and on every REM record except the "Radio Free Europe" single, because I didn't have it at that point. This one got stolen, too, in Finland in 2008, and I had to ransom it back. We were in the middle of a tour, and my entire rig, which I have been using for years, is designed for this guitar and maybe one other. I was having trouble getting any kind of real tone without it. So it was nice to get it back."more
The Rickenbacker 360 Electric Guitar broke all the rules when it appeared amidst the British sound of the 1960s. Subtly updated through the years, this deluxe semi-hollowbody with its special contour around the entire body perimeter is incredibly comfortable. The unique body shape and rosewood fingerboard inlaid with triangular pearloid markers offer rich, retro visuals. The maple neck has dual truss rods while single-coil pickups deliver everything from clean tone to biting overdrive. Controls include volume and tone via a 3-way selector for each pickup. A master preset allows tone and volume settings to be accessed instantly with a toggle. Stereo output is standard with the Rickenbacker 360.
