Id rather see some new stuff. An acoustic bass for one, a five string electric bass, and a brand spanking new type of ric guitar with modern appointments.

Rose Morris- 11

And The Winner is: The Rose Morris and I've never even seen one.



....and not just kind of a win. A LANDSLIDE victory.

Rose Morris 1993 model. It's the only RM in the lineup not to recieve a full available reissue.

Guess we will have to keep dreaming because the Beatles never played one.....That seems to be the deciding factor in a reissue or not. ;(

Personally I would like to see a few Rickenbacker guitars reissued; the combo 850; any of their acoustic guitars; and an electric mandolin(I know that they were already reissued but maybe next time a model thats easy to find). I would also like to see Rickenbacker bring back some of their old options like the gold pick guards, and the vintage pickups.

RM1993 has a mixture of standard and deluxe features. It's neither fully deluxe (like a 360 OS) or standard (like a 330/12).

Basically---double bound body, unbound neck, F-hole instead of slash soundhole, and mono output instead of stereo, and rounded neck heel.

There is far more differences in a RM1993 that warrant a reissue over at least 4 different varieties of 325's that were produced for Beatles fans.... (including the RM1996, a guitar that Lennon used for all of two shows!).

Overall, the main difference of all RM models is the obvious F-hole instead of slash soundhole.

A couple of Rose,Morris models with slash soundholes include model 3261 (4005) and model 3262 (336/12) available in 1967.

thanks for the details about the RM guitars.

Yes, I have seen those with the F holes as opposed to the
"Cat's Eye" or "slash".

Definitely I prefer the American Rickenbackers with the slash or cat's eye. Somehow, the F hole does not match the 330/360 body style.

Ever since the 1960's, I saw Rickenbacker guitars as being kind of "space age", for example the 4001 Bass body and the 620 Guitar body. The 325 and the 330. Those are modern design exercises. "The Jetsons" of the guitar world, if you will.

I'm sticking with the American version.

I'd settle for a standard Mapleglo 330/360 with a vintage 21 fret neck.

If you had to hold me down to a model, the 1997 would be fine with me.

there is one just like that at eBay right now. I think it's a 1998. 330 MG double-bound.
