A Totally Mint 1966 Rickenbacker 365
1966 Rickenbacker 365 (two pickups with vibrato)
Asymmetrical double cutaway thinline semi-hollow body. This 15-inch-wide, 1 1/2 inch deep, full-sized thin-body guitar weighs just 7.0 lbs. and features offset cutaways with rounded horns providing a "sweeping crescent" profile across both. Maple body with a bound "cat's-eye" or slash soundhole and checker-board binding on the back. Three-piece maple/walnut/maple neck with a nut width of just under 1 5/8 inches, a scale length of 24 3/4 inches and a wonderful medium profile rising gently from 0.86 inches behind the first fret to 0.88 inches behind the 15th fret. Bound rosewood fretboard with 21 original medium frets and triangular sparkle crushed pearl inlays extending completely across fretboard. Five-piece (maple & walnut)headstock with white opaque plexiglass logo plate/truss rod cover with black lettering, secured by three screws. Individual Kluson Deluxe two-line tuners with oval metal buttons, each stamped on the underside "D-169400/Patent No." Two Rickenbacker chrome bar "toaster" pickups with nicely balanced outputs of 7.26k and 7.42k. Two-piece split-level white plexiglass pickguard with four screws. Five controls (two volume, two tone, and one blend control) plus three-way pickup selector switch, all on lower level of pickguard. The potentiometers are stamped "137 6601" & "137 6617" (CTS, January & April 1966). Seven-sided black plastic knobs with metal tops with black lettering. Rickenbacker individually adjustable six-saddle bridge with four height-adjustment screws which in turn sits on a Rickenbacker metal plate which is secured by two screws. Rickenbacker Ac'cent Vibrato tailpiece. Two side-mounted jack inputs, one 'normal' and one Rick-O-Sound Stereo. Serial number "FI 3072" (September 1966) stamped in blind on jack plate. Inside the control cavity, written in green marker is "365 P" and also "Bev/NAT" in pencil. This exceptional guitar has just some tiny and imperceptible indentations on the back, but is still in absolutely mint (9.50) condition - and certainly the finest example of a 365 that we have ever seen. Complete with the original black leather Rickenbacker guitar strap, two allen keys and an original? guitar cord. Housed in the original Rickenbacker three-latch, rectangular Silver-Gray case with black leather ends and blue plush lining (9.25+). (#2096)

Special Conditions

We wish to establish an ongoing relationship with you based upon your trust in our knowledge and judgment. To that end: We meticulously inspect in detail every guitar that we offer. We check the finish, all of the electrical components, serial numbers, etc. With over thirty years of experience collecting and handling vintage guitars and our enormous reference library, we bring to bear all that is known about guitar manufacturers, models, and annual production. We provide full, detailed descriptions and specs to each guitar. We openly disclose any and all flaws we discover, in writing. If the instrument is not completely “straight,” we will tell you so and why. We endeavor to conduct ourselves to the highest standard of professional behavior. We will deal fairly and ethically; no surprises, flim-flam, dubious business practices or shenanigans. We value your sense of privacy and uphold the highest standards of discretion and respect. We allow a full 48 hour honeymoon period when you buy a guitar from us. Please inspect your new guitar immediately upon receiving it. If you are not 100% satisfied with it we will refund the purchase price in full (less a re-stocking fee of 5%, shipping costs, credit card, Paypal or wire transfer fees) upon return of the guitar, if when it is returned to us it is in exactly the same condition as when sold. Please call us before returning the instrument. Amplifiers are not returnable. All errors and omissions excepted.
