A Pedigreed Rocker with Deluxe Appointments

The Rickenbacker 360 is the deluxe version of the 330. In addition to the 330's jangly maple tones and classic good vibes, the 360 gives you rounded horns, a contoured top edge that rolls into back binding, and iconic triangle ("shark fin") fingerboard inlays. Though most of these updates are cosmetic, one of the coolest upgrades to the 360 is the Rick-O-Sound stereo output. This sends each of the Hi-gain pickups to its own amplifier, or straight into a recording medium for instant stereo guitars. The Rickenbacker was loved by artists like George Harrison and Roger McGuinn for its shimmering chord voicings, and Sweetwater is sure contemporary players will enjoy its top-class tones as well.

Rickenbacker 360 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • All-maple construction provides a bright foundation
  • Hi-gain pickups and 5-knob layout allow for a wide range of tones
  • Rick-O-Sound stereo output drives two inputs at once
All-maple construction provides a bright foundation

Everything but the Rickenbacker 360's fingerboard is made from high-grade maple. Maple's density is partly responsible for the 360's famous sustain and top-end jangle and shimmer. Maple is also very stable, aiding in maintaining the structural integrity of the neck. The thick rosewood fingerboard adds a touch of warmth and harmonic richness to this otherwise bright instrument. Dot inlays give it the traditional 360 look.

Hi-gain pickups and 5-knob layout allow for a wide range of tones

The heart and soul of all Rickenbackers are the proprietary electronics. In the 360 electric guitar you'll find a pair of Hi-gain single-coils. These pickups deliver the stringiness of many other single-coils, but with an aggressive cut that has driven so many rhythm and lead guitar tracks through the decades. A 5-knob control layout with "blend" knob gives you a wide range of sounds to play with.

Rick-O-Sound stereo output drives two inputs at once

Rickenbacker's stereo Rick-O-Sound outputs send each pickup out to its own source. This lets you drive two amps at once for extra output and color blending. For example, you can feed your 360's neck pickup into a clean American tweed for bass definition, then out your bridge pickup to an overdriven British stack for raucous tube grit. This option is also great for studio performers. By sending one signal to two sources, you can get an instant stereo track with only one performance.

LOVE IT!!!

I've wanted a Rickenbacker 360/6 ever since I was in high school. I'm finally able to afford one, and decided to order the guitar "site unseen" from Sweetwater. After an in-house setup and a new set of strings, the guitar arrived, and I've been blown away ever since. Out of the box, the guitar was in tune, and has not gone out of tune since. The craftsmanship of the guitar is superb, and I have never owned a better guitar. The guitar feels like a dream to play, and there are so many tonal options, that I can't even begin to cover them in this review. I have a Vox AC15 that I use with the guitar, and with the help of an MXR Dyna Comp pedal, I can really get those classic Rickenbacker chimey tones from it. There are so many things I could say about this wonderful instrument, but I'll just sum up by saying that if you want a Rickenbacker 360/6, Sweetwater is the place to get it. As always, my sales engineer, Mark Magdich, treating me well, and continues to provide superior customer service. My Rickenbacker 360/6 will be with me for the rest of my life!
