RE: "It really troubles me to see guitars, especially Ricks, signed by a celeb in black Magic Marker or Sharpie. In time, this can penetrate completely through the varnish, into the wood itself. No way to get it out, although it can be sanded off wood."


That depends, Paul, on one's perspective and desires.

I see that as a GOOD thing.

First of all, John, you've got the points on that Holden set way too close...should be about .018" as I recall...
OOps, appologies for the double post !
Paul, thanks for the help. I'll raid my wife's cosmetics stash for some nail varnish. I'll post another photo after the repair.
Thanks, JC

O.K.

I am going to ask a Deja Vu question.

The nut on a 360-12.

Is there some way you could post a scale diagram of what the old 12 string nut looked like and what the new 12 string nut looks like?

I have played a 660-12 and it is a much wider neck than a 360-12. I still feel that if the strings were spaced a little further apart on the 360-12 that the average player would have a much better playing experience.

Maybe you have recommendation that is different from the corporate answer.

A forum member has posted photos of the two side-by-side.

If you search, you will find it.

Yes I have seen that. It does not answer my question.

Just trying to move this back to the top of the list...

What would our members want to know, specifically, about Rickenbacker construction, restoration and finishing?.


I want to know what is a fair price for this guitar?

I am trying to buy my first Ric, but I'm afraid that I'm not worthy of a brand-new model -- especially when people say they've been waiting 2 years for one.

There are three people in the world who know what a fair price for this guitar might be:

1) you (how much do you want it)?
2) the seller (how much can they get for it)?
3) the ultimate buyer (how much they were willing to pay)?

The rest of us can only tell you how much we would pay and that will vary widely based on preferences, condition, needs, wants, ability to pay, etc. It will vary so widely that it will have no relevance.

I love the ingenius way the headstocks on the 12-strings are made, looks like a six but it's a twelve. How come the headstock on an 8-string bass are not done the same way? Is there a reason for this? Love to have one btw.

With the added tension of the bass strings, it probably would not have sructural integrity to make a cutout in the headstock.
