1967 Rickenbacker 330/12 in Mapleglo at Pittsburgh Guitars

1967 Rickenbacker 330/12 12-String
Mapleglo finish, made in the USA, and in excellent overall condition. There is nothing like the iconic jangle of a Rickenbacker 12-string! Features on this guitar include a double-cutaway, semi-hollow maple body with slash soundhole, a 3-ply maple/walnut/maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and 21 frets, two Rickenbacker toaster pickups with 3-way switching and 5 control knobs -- tone and volume for each pickup, and a blend knob -- and the Rickenbacker "R" tailpiece. This is is a very clean example of this model, with only minor dings and light scratches, some on the body but mostly on the headstock and the bottom of the instrument. We have the original bridge cover, which screws are missing. The neck is straight and it has very minor fret wear. And the + wire from the input jack had been mysteriously cut and spliced when we got it. Other than that, this guitar is all original, and cool as can be! Price includes original hard case.
