A 660/6 neck through solid body but with the body shape of a 350, toaster at the neck and high gain or HB at the bridge. Autumnglo or Fireglo. Checker binding, vintage tail, vintage tuners, highly figured... mmmmm.

Could you, please, tell us on which date the new 75th anniversary/ 2006 models will be announced?

It will be announced at winter NAMM as usual, I would venture to guess. So Jan 19-22.

Rickenbacker carried the 320 for years in their standard series guitar catalog even while the B Series 325 were offered.

I think it was dropped when the V Series produced the 325V63 and 325V59 along with the John Lennon Limited Edition which came in about 3 different ways.
325JL, 355JL 355/12JL

Presently the C Series has two models 325C58 and 325C64 being made along with the 350V63 and the 350/12V63

I don't kknow if the company is going to add a 325 to the Standard Series when they are trying to market these 4 models?

The best thing to do is look for a nice used 320 from the 70's or the 80's if that's the road you want to go...


Got one! :) 1981 320JG

Well, not to sound like a cracked record, but my dream Ricky (this is actually IN my dreams!) is the 325C59 in mapleglo (alderglo). I drool over the 320 fireglo too. I would LOOOOOOVE to see a 320 in turquoise with gold pickguard & truss rod cover or blueboy. Mmmmmmm! Any chance there'll ever be a pink Ricky? (pinkgirl)?

dream guitar is exactly what I'm looking for.
hajimashite, my name is Raurik. I'm looking to mod a
4003. I want to change it from a bass, to a standard.
the guitar's, just, so....words can't describe it's beauty
(?_?)m

but, I don't play bass, never have. I want to see if
the company's willing to make a custom.

a blue Rickenbacker 4003 with white trim, place the
extra two chord holder things at the end in between the
two current ones. left handed, of course. XD
white face plate, (?_?) I need it.

Does anyone know any
policy that they might do for custom guitars?
or how I might pull this off?
(short of taking a drill to it myself)

It would be a 350V63WB with your pick of bookmatched flame/quilted/birdseye maple top and back, checker bound along the back/top join like a 360, vintage sharkfin inlays that extend across the whole finger board like a 660, gold lucite guard and nameplate, some late '90's spec. 12k toasters for that classic Malcolm Young clear but loud and ballsy AC/DC sound when overdriven, yet can still sound cool for jangle and blues sounds.

Translucent finishes only to highlight the flame in Mapleglo, Fireglo, Blueburst and Burgundyglo. Optional gold plated hardware.

Cheers, Kez

Something like this?

One went on ebay the last week or two. Very reasonable.

I actually really like the colors they have now, namely midnight blue and blue burst- I'm a sucker for blue. My only wish is that they would bring back BLACK HARDWARE! Nothing looks sweeter than a Rick with black hardware and binding, especially in Blue.
