Description

This is one of the most beautiful, all original & ridiculously rare 360’s ever produced. Its 1 of only 62 “Old Style” Double Bound bodied 6 String guitars w/a factory Ac’cent Vibrato made in 1966. Its Firglo finish is stunningly faded showing off its beautifully figured Maple body front & back also sporting what has become Rickenbacker folk law…that pretty sharp cutaway body “White” bound w/its crushed pearl inlaid fingerboard over a 3-piece Walnut & Maple neck. Its 2 Toaster pickups are powerful w/its intricate 60’s “Chang” tones like no Strat has nor any Les Paul have.  She’s sporting her original White pickgards w/a matching White Truss Rod Cover. Its Individual ‘double-line’ Kluson Deluxe tuners with oval metal buttons are near perfect shape. Its sports 5 chrome capped Black Vol. & Tone knobs. The potentiometers are stamped “137 6601” from the 1st week of 1966). Inside its control cavity is Rick’s marker stating its “365” 2 pickup configuration. Its got its original bridge and cool Ac’cent Vibrato tailpiece. The serial # “FC” is stamped onto the double “Rick-O-Sound” and “Standard” jack plate being completed March 1966. What makes this so special is its THE MOST recognized Rick design that both Pete Townsend & George Harrison has ever played out live in their earliest days. To own an original mid-60’s 365 OS instead of a 90’s Reissue (which is still a rather expensive guitar today) is simply unimaginable so don’t wait long to grab it. She’s Exceptionally Clean overall & completely original. Included is its original Silver tolex/Blue lined hard case.
