Does anyone know who played a 325 back in the late 50s, early 60s who maybe didn't even know Lennon played one?

If Lennon hadn't chose a 325 "all those years ago", the guitar would probably only be a footnote now. What do you think?

You could say that about a lot of things in life, though.

If I hadn't been an R.E.M. fan, if I had bought a Queen album instead of Out of Time when I was eleven, I wouldn't be sitting near my girlfriend of six years right now, or playing guitar. That one album literally had that much impact on my life.

So, if Lennon hadn't played a Rickenbacker, what would the world be like today? I'd rather not ponder that question.

I think the question musicfan posed is what if Lennon hadn't played a 325, not what if he hadn't played a Rick.

I think Rick still would have made out fine, esp. with George playing one, but I agree that particular model would probably not still be in production today.

Ah yes it's a "what if" or "twist of fate" kind of thing...............

What if Paul McCartney had not chosen a Hofner 500/1.............

What if Buddy Holly had not chosen a Stratocaster..............

I totally agree! The 500/1 wouldn't be here but the Strat would because many other famous players chose that instrument.
