I checked out that 355v63 on Reverb from Japan and they just have the model number wrong. That is a model 1996!


The pickup spacing is far too wide for a model 1996.


Never noticed the Pick-up spacing - good eye! :oops:

Well, because of this thread I got interested in the guitar in question, and after hesitating to buy it because it is from Japan, I pulled the trigger on it today. :shock:
I always liked this model, but did not want a short scale neck. I also always liked the 1- o'clock "F" hole to the more slanted 2-o'clock one. Well this one has both of what I want, so I bought it. Now I just hope that everything goes smooth with shipping, and the guitar is in good shape when it arrives. I'll keep you guys posted :!:

Received my Ric 355v63 from Japan today. I want to thank Docmarino for starting this thread and finding this guitar, (one I did not know existed), and tweaking my interest.
I always liked the 1996 model, but did not want a short scale neck. Well this is that guitar, WITH a long scale neck (and "F"sound hole). Never saw one before, but they made a limited run for the Japanese market (confirmed by Ms. Hall) and now it's mine! Even has the certificate confirming the 355v63 model number :shock: .
For a 23 year old guitar it is in almost perfect condition with no issues and a perfectly straight neck. Couldn't be happier and she's a true "rare find". ;)

Not too savvy on posting photo's, the best I can do is tell you to google Rickenbacker 355v63 and the pics from the place in Japan has very good photos of it! :oops:

Thanks Paul, I've tried it and found this page:
http://item.rakuten.co.jp/wonderrex/9200100423520/
This should be the 355v63 (?) Wonderful!
Is there any way to read the site in english?

There should be a translate tab on the front of the site.

I have been a Ric fan for a VERY long time, and a fan of the Rose Morris models (with "F" hole), and this is the only 355v63 I have EVER come across. It being 23 years old and in such excellent condition, I truly got lucky on a rare find. I was very hesitant to purchase a guitar from Japan, but I rolled the dice and it payed off "THIS" time! :o .
Great guitar, there are a few short scales out there, but good luck trying to find this style with the "F" hole AND the long scale neck!!! :shock:
