A classic instrument that looks as contemporary today as it did when it was first released, the Rickenbacker 370/12 12-String Electric Guitar offers a sound you only get from a Rickenbacker.
Giving you the distinctive ringing ‘60s rock sound created by Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, this guitar does what it does very well. The Rickenbacker 370/12 has also seen very few cosmetic changes over the years to keep its authentic look, but one improvement is the slight contouring of the guitar to make it even more comfortable to play. Of course the classic, unique features are all there, such as the crescent moon shaped double cutaway, slash-shaped sound hole, and the ‘R’ shaped tailpiece.
Just like the 360/12, the Rickenbacker 370/12 Guitar only uses premium woods, with maple being used to construct the body and neck, while rosewood is used for the fingerboard.
The use of quality maple for the body gives the Rickenbacker 370/12 12-String Electric Guitar its bright tone and clarity, while the bound, semi-hollow body keeps the guitar lightweight. Joined to the body is a maple neck offering sizzling highs and firm lows, topped by a 24-fret, lacquered rosewood fingerboard with triangular pearloid inlays.
The Rickenbacker 370 12-String Electric Guitar comes readily armed with three Hi-gain single-coil pickups (one more than the 360/12) offering up all the ‘60s jangle you could want. These are controllable by a selector switch and two volume and tone controls, with an additional Blend control available to blend the tone of two pickups together.
The Rickenbacker 370/12 also has mono and stereo outputs, so you can hook up to two amps simultaneously.
