Beg Your Pardon: I believe Doc Kaufmann was the 1st to play Electric Amplified Guitars in the early 1930's with various bands in So. California. Doc was instrumental in the development of electric fretted instruments back then and the inventor of the vibrola/whammy bar gizzmo that eventually became Freddie Taveras and Leo Fenders claim to fame.

Other than George Beachump, he may have been one of the first, other than Les Paul to play electric and a Rickenbacker . . .


Dale, You're quite right, I forgot to mention Doc Kauffman.

If you re-read my post I kinda CMA by padding it for error of omission by stating "he may have been one of the first" . . .

Howdy,

On VH-1's "100 most shocking moments in the history of Rock & Roll", there was a segment about Alice Cooper throwing a wayward Chicken off the stage in Toronto (1969) after a fan threw it onto the stage.
In this clip one can easily make out the guitarist using a MG or FG 360!I'm assuming it was a 6-string, but couldn't tell. Anyone?

I was talking with an oldtimer in his 90's the other day who was a session drummer in LA back in the 40's through 70's, who used to come in the music store where I worked in the mid 70's and later owned an interest in the late 80's . . .

His body's old, but his mind is as sharp as a tack. He told me that his grandson has been jamming with all kinds of other musicians he'd met on the Internet. We somehow got on the subject of electric guitars, and when they began to be accepted in orchestras and recording.

I told him that the Internet has made the world a much smaller place where forums such as this, open up many ideas to discussion. Having mentioned this site's forums, he brought up Perry Botkin who was probably the most in demand session guitar, banjo and mandolin player during the 30's 40's and 50's, as we were discussing instrument manufacturers still in business today. Being we were discussing Rickenbacker, he said that Botkin was one of the first to play an electrically amplified Rickenbacker guitar outfit. Other than George Beachump, he may have been one of the first, other than Les Paul to play electric and a Rickenbacker . . .


Perry Botkin's son, Perry Botkin Jr. is a MAJOR musician and producer in LA music scene. He's seen commenting on Carol Kaye's contribution to modern music, as 'The First Lady of Bass' on her NEW website's streaming video at www.carolkaye.com . . .

This isn't exactly RIC related, but a GREAT site to learn about a GREAT session bassist and legend, who's been on the TOP of the 'A' LIST since before most of us here were born. She's been on so many Pop, Rock, R&B, Blues and Jazz recordings, there's NOT many other bassists who even come close to her. She also is a session guitarist who can burn it up with the BEST . . .

This site was HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to me by a friend who's worked with her for almost 50 years. After looking it over all day today, I felt maybe some of you advanced players would also really enjoy it . . .

Peter Banks, who played on the first two Yes albums, played a Ric. Steven Van Zandt, one of the guitarists in Springsteen's E Street Band, also sometimes cracks out a lovely 620.

Fantasy and science-fiction author Michael Moorcock plays a Ric 12-string, a 366/12, I believe.

Cyril Jordan & Mike Wilhelm from the Flamin Groovies, both played Ric 12 strings. Listen to their SIRE records era.

Matter of fact. Our own John Williams used to own Cyril's 1965 360/12.

I can hardly believe that I failed to mention Steve Howe, who's been playing a 330/12 for decades. In the 1990s, he switched his 12-string allegiance to a different brand, but I think that he's back "with the program."

More shocking moments...Alice Cooper's "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" is scheduled to be released sometime next year plus the band will be doing some "Nightmare" concerts.

This player may not fit as an oldie, but he was one of my Favorites. I was a just a young guy and all of my bud's were going to see a new group called "The Pretenders" at a small club in New Jersey called Emerald City. When I saw James Honeyman Scott tare it up on what I think was a 360 on the song called "The Wait" I was reeled in hook, line and sinker.
