Rickenbacker / 335 Mapleglo / 1966 / Guitar

The semi-hollowbody Rickenbacker 330 stormed onto the scene in the '50s and brought with it a jangly tone that would help define pop music for a decade. The Rickenbacker 335 was the same as the 330, only with a vibrato tailpiece. Like most Rickenbackers, the 330 and 335's popularity was propelled by the Beatles (though George's most iconic Rickenbacker was actually a 360-12). This Rick is the 335 model and is finished in a rare Maple Glo finish. The 335 (and its brother) features a longer scale length of 654 mm, which was and is still quite unusual. The semi-hollow body is made of solid maple back and sides and is paired with a 3-piece maple/walnut neck. The open and airy sound is amplified by the unique Toaster-pickups and give it that typical '60s jangle that the newer reissue just can't deliver. This 335 is in good condition with traces of use across the body and some light bucklerash on the back. The solid maple top makes the guitar a bit more fragile than guitars with laminated tops, and this one has two repaired cracks, which probably come from the screwed down pickguard. Don't forget that this guitar is already 50 years old and has led quite a live before it came to us.

ABOUT US

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
