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.

    Nice guitar. Neck smooth and sleek. Only problem is action is a bit high and I can't seem to lower without causing a buzz. It is a beautiful guitar though.
