Is there a way to find out if one of my Rickenbacker Guitars was owned prior by a Celebrity? The guitar is a December 1974 model 362 in Jetglo (S/N - NL 7242). Any assistance would be appreciated

How do you define, "Celebrity"?

Tom Petty or Mike Campbell

Good news is that there is a list of celebrity owned RICS in the RRF register.

Bad news is that your instrument is not on that list. lol

I was pleased to see your 362 there with pictures - thanks for registering it.

I once owned a "celebrity" Rickenbacker. My first 1980 620 /12 once belonged to the irish singer songwriter Chris De Burgh. (He only had it for about three years, so I owned it longer then he did).

Without speaking for RIC in any way, I would doubt they would release such info. They have kept the possible SN's of George's missing 12 string private for example.

I think Tom Petty still owns his JG 362 doubleneck - so I doubt yours is the one on the album cover at least. :-)

Thanks Brian. What made me think about this was when I was registering the guitar in the RRF registry and there was a field for celebrity owned and the fact that it is an early s.n for the series.
