Rare Guitar Heaven
Do You Know The Rarest Rickenbacker 360F Fireglo?
Boy do we love Rick's from the 50's, but the Rickenbacker 360F model has to be the rarest one!
The model 360F is one of the guitars from the Thin Full-Body Series, these guitars were introduced in 1958. Its got the coolest vibe from any period Rick produced, its prototype like features are finished in this beautiful faded factory "Fireglo" sunburst finish and is absolutely stunning, one of the earliest examples to come out of the factory. The original Rickenbacker 360F model was so rare as only 15 were ever produced in 1960, this was most likely the very 1st "Fireglo" finished 360F example ever made and was the predecessor to all other Ricks that wore this most popular color Sunburst finish, undisputed to be one of Rick's most historic guitars ever made.
This one pictured here is a customized Rickenbacker 360F Copy we built for a customer. In order to re-create it with hardrock feel and realize many guitar lovers’guitar dream, our experienced luthiers chose the great tonewood and spent quite a lot of time on researching the background information and studying the specs. The maple construction is super grainey and figured especially the 3 piece maple/walnut neck, this Rickenbacker 360F model pre-dates most other 360F's but still wearing the original Kluson Deluxe type tuners, gold painted clear lucite double pickgards and matching gold "Rickenbacker" truss rod cover, two "Toaster" type pickups and controlled by four Rick type volume and tone knobs, also equipped with a lopez type tailpiece customized by our customer.
