Rickenbacker / 365 / 1966 / MAPLEGLO / Guitar
In the Rickenbacker line, the 365 was one of the deluxe models, with bound rosewood fretboard, triangular 'crushed pearl' inlays, bound slash sound-hole, 'checkered binding' on the back side of the body. Basically, the 365 was the vibrato version of the 360 model. The tailpiece is the classic '60s 'Ac-cent' chrome plated vibrato. The graceful half-moon shape of the body was modified around 1965 with rounded body edges, On the guard's lower side, there are five control knobs and the pickup selector switch. The pickups are the typical 'toaster' units, so closely associated to the look and sound of the '60s Rickenbackers. The large jack-plate has two sockets for the stereo Rick-O-Sound effect, with the signal of each pickup sent to a different amplifier, but you can use the guitar with a standard single jack. The clear Mapleglo finish enhances the beauty of the maple of the body. Maple is also used for the neck, with a darker central mahogany large laminated stripe. Two more darker mahogany wings are added on the heastock. The tuning machines are original Kluson Deluxe double-lines. All original hardware and circuitry, with pots dated 40th week of '66. The serial number is from December of the same year. Absolutley perfect 'museum quality' conditions, only a very few minor signs on the back, almost invisible and impossible to show in the pictures. You'll never seen another one in this condition. It comes with its original hardshell case in silver tolex, in excellent condition.Much more accurate description and 36 pictures online, go to www.realvintage.it.
