hi, i'm new of this forum, i'm an italian luthier.
about a month ago a customer brought me a 360 which had the neck destroyed after a wrong repair, some wooden plugs were inserted from the back of the neck to allow the fretboard to glue on it (don't ask me, i don't know why to do such a thing, also because it only needed glue and clamps) so i had to rebuild it and repaint to the original colorglo, that's the finished job...i'll post some pics of the old neck as soon as i make some.

Welcome to the Rickenbacker forums! That's a beautiful guitar, you have done a great restoration job, it looks very impressive and you certainly got a good result.

Looks great! Isn't that technically a different model than a 360, because of the "F" hole (something like a 1997)?

yeah right, it's a rose morris, in fact instead of slash it has the "f" and the serial starts with "gb" on the jack plate, that stands for great britain....but i imagine you already know :-D

No actually the GB stands for February 1967 - which was the month and year the guitar was made...

What are the three numbers on the other side of the jackplate... That will tell you what country it was sent to...

Italy, of course.

I've seen almost no rounded top 360s with the f-hole that were shipped anywhere but Italy, and all in 1967.

Most had plugs in the 12-string headstock channels to convert to 6-strings. Not sure if this was done by Rickenbacker or the distributor in Italy..

I think it's just called a 360, since it has binding, fret inlays, and the rounded body shape. The Rose, Morris Model 1997 export had the old style body, no binding, and dot inlays on the fretboard. I've seen pictures of Pete Townshend playing an old-style Rick 360 with an f-hole. In fact I suspect it might be the first guitar he smashed after accidentally sticking the head through the ceiling of the Marquee Club. He used it on "I Can't Explain," I believe.
