Hey, I'm a Fender and Les Paul user, how does the Ric differ in playablilty to these friends of mine. I'm interested in a 3rd electric guitar.

Hmmm. You really have to check out not just one Rick, but several. While their styling is legendary, I think they are sold short for tone. Rickenbackers seem more lively (and about fifty pounds lighter) than a Les Paul. A bit like a Fender, but with a distinctly different personality. You may want to check out the different body styles, necks and pickup combos. Every Rick I have played is extremely comfortable. If the classic ricks have necks too thin for you, you might consider the 650 or 660. I have had many, many guitars- and some were very expensive- but my 370/6 and 350C just couldn't be #3 behind any other 6-string. I don't think my 360/12 wants to be third. They are my 1 and 2 now, but it is hard to say which is which. You'll probably need a 12 string too. ;)
