I just purchased a 1990 355/12JL and I am very happy with it and but I cannot find the right gauge strings that came on it when it was new in 1990. Can someone help me? I am going to have the guitar setup and want to get the right strings for it. I also have heard debates as to whether this is a short scale or full, can someone clear that up for me as well, though as far as liking the guitar, it doesn't matter to me. I am a huge Beatles fan and this is my new pride and joy.

You should be able to purchase a set of new Ric strings in the 12 string set. The boutique (see tab above) is down until January but you can probably get these from The Ric Page or Pick of the Ricks. That set should be what's on the guitar from the factory.

I'll clear that up for you. The 355/12JL is full scale.

Thanks for the information. I am really proud of this guitar and I did some research and found out that of the 2000 Lennon re-Issues made in 1990, only 329 12 strings were made. Does that make them a little more rarer? Also I got the guitar which is in great shape and seems all original and the case (no case candy)for $1875. Does that seem like a fair price.

Congratulations on your Ric! I wouldn't worry about the price since the guitar means that much to you. Have fun playing it!

Thanks Lennon, I take from your response that I paid too much and that is ok, I will add it to the Gretch (Harrison's Guitar)that I have and play Beatles forever. Thanks for the advise.

No, I didn't mean to imply that at all! I don't know what market value is on those. I just meant that sometimes the connection between the player and the instrument is more important. I would never imply one way or another whether someone overpaid. Not my business or my thing to do.
