While Rickenbacker had been around for some years previously, it was the 1960s that brought the brand into the public eye. An integral element in the sound of The Beatles, the guitar's shape was becoming almost as familiar as John, Paul, George and Ringo themselves. It was a Rickenbacker 325 Capri that John Lennon played during their famous 1964 appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. The world went wild, and discovered Rickenbacker.
There is a demand for the Rickenbacker for guitarists that love the retro look and sound of these remarkable instruments. However, many musicians are discovering the versatility of these 6 string and 12 string guitars and their powerful electric bass models. Not only can you get that vintage, jangly guitar sound, but you can also achieve tougher rock sounds. The Rickenbacker 360 Fireglo and 630 Fireglo guitars make excellent gig instruments, able to produce chunky sounds and clear, individual notes.
For a sound with more depth and a greater sound dimension, choose the Rickenbacker 620-12 Fireglo. This 12 string electic guitar has an indescribably richness of sound that adds an impressive tone and timbre to your sound. The Rickenbacker 4003 Jetglo bass has that classic shape, while offering incredible punch and range.
