Who thinks they should reissue a few models of the capri models from the late 50s and early 60s like the 330,335,340,345,360,365. and maybe remake the exact designs from the mid 60s for the 360/12. I feel like it would be the greatest comeback

Not as much as id like to see the acoustic department open its doors again!

One model, one colour in 6 string. Thats all I ask for :D

Why don't you just buy an original Capri or 60s 360/12?

You can still get a Rickenbacker acoustic. Jingle_Jangle is an authorized luthier for Rickenbacker.

Unfortunately, Paul's license expired to produce Rickenbacker-branded product but he does still produce some amazing guitars in a similar style

Expired? Would that be an indication that some consideration is being give to bringing back some of the acoustic line? :D

Not in the least. It just isn't feasible for us to build acoustics here in So. California.

For me, having played a late '50's Capri many years ago, the body does not feel balanced to me, especially when sitting down. The waist is too far forward to balance. I'll take the standard 300-series body shapes, thank you very much.
