This 660/12 Rickenbacker is in excellent condition, having only been lightly used at home. Finished in Fireglo, this guitar looks as good as it sounds. Includes original hard case.
This excellent solid-bodied guitar comes complete with a Charactered Maple body and neck, high-gain single-coil pickups, rosewood fretboard with those trademark Triangle inlays, a lacquered Ruby Red finish, and a single "Mono" output socket.
The high-output Single Coil pickups are designed along similar lines to the original Toaster pickups, only with a higher output that's more suited to today's musical needs. In addition to each pickup have it's own Volume & Tone controls, there's a Blend control knob.
This knob has several different functions, such as acting as a tone blender between the pickups and as a general Bass & Treble EQ for the guitar. It's primary function though, is to act as a volume equaliser for the bass pickup, boosting the usually quieter pickup to be of a comparatively equal volume to its treble counterpart.
A 12-string guitar produces a far richer tone than a standard six-string. The additional strings on the instrument are placed side-by-side with the traditional 6 strings, with only a narrow gap between them, and whilst the Top E and B strings are tuned in unison with their counterparts (essentially, doubling up), the 4 extra strings in the lower register are tuned to an octave higher than their own counterpart, making for a beautifully rich wash of sound even when playing the simplest of chords.
