Hi All,

I've never owned a Ric, but am seriously looking the "right" one now.

Question for all you Ric players: To the best of your knowledge, has Ric ever made double necks? Or would that be a special order?

Thx,

J

hi,
ohh yes, they made double necks, go to the History menu, select Literature Archive, select 1970's, select 1975.
and look at the model 362-12/6 Doubleneck. also look in the 1980's menu, select 1981. Rare guitars that they are

since you are in San Jose, you might visit their factory, get on your bended knees and beg them for a 362-12/6 :-))

Going from San Jose to Santa Ana isn't like going down the block to the supermarket. It is more than a six hour drive (about 400 miles).

I can do 400 miles in 3 hours, as in "beam me up Scotty".

I think your energy would be better spent watching the used market like an eagle. I can't speak for Mr. Hall but I think your chances of getting a custom instrument of that nature new from the factory is effectively 0%.
Find a used one and make all of us jealous.

The model 4080 was also a double neck but one neck with a bass and the other with a six string.

I saw one on eBay not two months ago, and the price wasn't bad, something like $4,900.00 complete with case, everything in mint condition. You just have to have the money when they show up.

I saw Steve Lukather's on eBay last year. I forgot how much they were asking.

Unfortunatley Rickenbacker doesn't make double necks anymore.
You might need to look on Ebay and be ready to pay out the ASS for one or check vintage guitar shops on the internet and still be ready to pay out the ASS.

My dream instrument is a 4080-12 which is a doubleneck (one neck a bass, the other a 12 string guitar) which was made famous by Geddy Lee.

These are rare beasts and it appears unlikely that RIC will ever manufacture them again. So it's a watch and wait on e-bay for the most part. You might see one (not usually the 12 string variety, but rather the 6 string) a couple times a year.

Watch out for fakes, ones that have been heavily modified, or extremely over-priced. These are disappearing however, as collectors tend to hoard them.
