I have one Ric, almost had two, and that's my 360. It made me a better guitar player (I played only that guitar for over two months, picked up my others, and was BETTER!)

My others are:
2005 Gibson SG - My main guitar
2008 Fender Jazzmaster Classic Player
'76 Gibson Les Paul - L6s Model designed by Bill Lawrence (I call it a Les Paul because it's just like one, other than it being made of SOLID Maple. My Six switch is converted to only change pickup positions and silence them at position 1)
Fender/Squier Telcaster - I've used this on some recordings; sounds better than an American Tele, but isn't built like one.
Gibson/Squier '51 - Has Seymour Duncans, and a Gibson sticker on the headstock.
Tacoma Acoustic - Made in Washington
Squier Jagmaster

No longer own the Tele. I just want a good Strat now.

I play in a couple of different bands and at church, so I have a core group that I call my "toolkit":

96 Ric 360/6
1989 Kramer Nightswan
1979 Fender Stratocaster
Epiphone Dot Studio
Epiphone Les Paul with Floyd Rose
Kramer FR404 Imperial (Explorer shape)

I also have a bunch of extra guitars that are mostly Kramers:

1986 Kramer Stagemaster
1988 Kramer Pacer Custom
1983 Kramer Focus 4000 (V shape)

Besides my 2006 Rickenbacker 620 (S/N 19179) I've got:

1976 Gibson Les Paul Standard Goldtop
1959 Gibson Les Paul Jr (S/N 9 9030)
1996 Fender American Standard Telecaster
2008 Fender American Standard Stratocaster
2004 Fender Highway One Precision Bass
Ibanez RG3EXQM1

I don't play out anymore and, in fact, have been turning into more of a keyboard player anyway but I still use all these guitars at various times on my home recordings.

I've grown into more of a keyboard emulator when I play guitar. *Heh heh* A Ric works well in that department, actually.

I have a 360JG and am borrowing (long-term, hopefully) a 4003JG. I plan on buying a 360/12FG soon, and my other axe is an Epiphone ES-335 Dot with a Bigsby that I put on it.

I've owned Gibsons, Fenders, Epiphones in the past, some dozen guitars, all American made (apart from the Epis)...none have come close to the quality of Rics, IMO

Two 325's,one v59 with bigsby and one v63- then gibson les paul heritage 80-hofner 66 violin bass reissue-self built telecaster from fender parts-gibson j160e custom built order to 62 spec-fender dg21 accoustic and one classical guitar which was my first in 1966,made in the german democratic republic- Oh and shouldn't we end that with a partridge in a pear tree? ha ha!! On a different note has anyone ordered direct from the company,as i'm having problems getting a reply!! i need to order a hardcase for my 325v59 as i never had one,you see way back in 1987 they did not come with the guitar as standard,and with the cost at the time i could not afford it,can now though! my v59 was the show display model at olympia and i remember bartering for weeks on end with the distributor to let me buy it,god that was hard work but i got it,and with a discount,but my friend who helped seal the dael and had it sent to his shop,i then paid on a weekly basis for a nearly a year,but hey it was greatly appreciated, it became my standard hack for,well, 20 years over now,did have one mishap though,it got dropped when strap gave way on stage,resulting in a completely severed neck, god i cryed!! but a saint came to the rescue and took it to his workshop down london way and my,what a superb job he did,so it was happy ending ,thank-god. luckily he used to do a lot of work with rickenbackers,someday i am going to refinish the neck to tidy it up a little,but i don't think i will touch the body ,as i think the worn look say's it all when on stage. so as you can see i am really testifying that the 325 is a marvellous guitar if you have small hands to work it,and the sound through both marshall jcm 800 and vox ac 30 is superb,the sustain with the jcm is very like bryan may's sound for lead with a heavy bottom end sound ,lovely, i won't part with any of them!!

Well my other guitars consist of:

2011 Rickenbacker 360-12 FG (Built 3rd Week 2011)
Also just bought a MXR DynaComp (The "you know what" one was too expensive for me.)

2011 CF Martin D-28 Acoustic

2009 Epiphone Casino - Natural

2006 Gibson ES-335 Dot Re-issue inCherry

2002 Yamaha Ocean Series Acoustic Electric

2001 Rickenbacker 330-6 FG

1970 Ovation Legend Acoustic Electric

1967 Gibson JG-12

Marshall Valve State 8020 Amp.

I just sold my 1994 Les Paul Custom this week to buy the RIC 360-12. Definitely a good choice for me.

All are my favorites, but I have a real good feeling when I play my RIC 360-12 and my Martin D-28. Different guitars for different types of music. I just seem to accumulate them and sell the ones I just hardly play like the Les Paul.

I wish I never sold my old Strats and Tele from way back then, as well as the Fender Twin Reverb. They would have had some real value today.

Man, I'm jealous of y'all. I used to have a dozen guitars but I downsized when I got married (needed the $$ and the space). What I wouldn't give to have them all back now. Still, my 360 is my absolute favorite and the one I play 99% of the time.

I should have added to my previous post that in addition to a FG 360/12, my other dream guitar is to buy my own 4003 JG. I'd never need another guitar or bass after getting those two 8)
