Overview

As one of the most popular Rick guitars currently in production, the Rickenbacker 330 has a host of famous fans: Tom Petty, Pete Townshend, Carrie Brownstein, and Johnny Marr, to name a few. The 330 sports Rickenbacker’s classic semi-hollow crescent moon body made of maple. Older 330 models came with the Rickenbacker Toaster pickups, which are more suited to a tone a la The Beatles, while the newer Hi-Gain pickups may sound more like The Smiths. Either way, the Rickenbacker 330 is great for jangly, British-sounding tone.

    Always wanted one, now Ive got it. It is like nothing else Ive ever played. Mine has a Mastery bridge which im told is key to enhancing the tone and sustain, but these Rics are incredible right out of the box.

    Tone, chime, resonance, and sustain for days. Incredibly versatile tonally; the pickups go from dream to scream. Such a joy to play!!!! Plugged or unplugged, this guitar is hard to put down. When I'm not playing her I'm staring at her. Gorgeous guitar!
