What makes this guitar special:  Very rare 360 model with unique slanted frets, hi-gain pickups & bound headstock.  Other gorgeous features include the crushed pearloid fret inlays & checker board binding on the back of the body.  The Fireglo finish is still quite vibrant & the pickups sound absolutely amazing!  Professionally set up by Cream City Music, so it plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition:  Superb condition for its age - very clean & looks practically new!

Neck:  Slender profile maple neck with cream binding & black side-dots.  Beautiful rosewood fingerboard with crushed pearloid inlays.  Original slanted frets are in great shape with no wear.  Bound headstock with period-correct Kluson Deluxe tuners.  There were other tuners on the guitar at one time as evidenced by the extra holes in the back of the headstock, which are now filled.  1 5/8" slanted nut with Pat Pend stamp; 24 3/4" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rods are in good working condition.

Body:  Semi-hollow, maple body with bound slash hole & checker board back binding.  "R" tailpiece & six-saddle adjustable bridge with cover.  Split-level, white pickguard is in great shape with no cracks.  Guitar weighs a very comfortable 6 lbs 14 oz.

Pickups:  Original Rickenbacker Hi-Gain single coils which are also slanted.  The pickups sound fantastic with that classic Ric tone.  Dual volume & tone controls with blend knob.  3-way toggle switch; mono & stereo outputs.  Pots date to '70.  All electronics are original & in good working condition.

Case:  Original hardshell case included.
