Get Thomastik Infelds instead and you'll not only have the tone, you'll actually enjoy playing them, instead of doing battle with them.

Good Job!

With respect to getting the proper jangly sound for the RIC 12(or 6), at tleast for a Birds-y or Beatlesque tone, I find that I get all of the 12 string tone I want just by using a lot of midrange control(about 6 or 7, treble between 3-4, the bass at 4, and the volume pretty much anywhere 2 on up, on a Fender Black face RI, and on a Vox, I use the treble at 10 or 12 o'clock, the bass at 10 o'clock, the volume between 9 and 11 o'clock, and the tone cut at about 5 o'clock. I get the tone and sustain I'm looking for, which to my ear fits the sound you're looking for.

I think the REM 12 string sound is much less mid-range-y than the Birds or Beatles tone, as is the Smiths. More high end and likely quite compressed to get the sustain with less mid range and more top end, but I think this can also be accomplished with the same mid range settings I mentioned earlier and more top end.


Oops. On the tone cut setting on the Vox, I meant 7 o'clock, not 5 o'clock; it's a completely opposite setting. At the 5 o'clock setting, the tone cut is fully clockwise and off. At the 7 o'clock setting the tone cut is fully anti/counterclockwise, and fully engaged. The latter setting cuts out the squealing, screeching feedback highs.

Ah! Strong advice from the man who'd know best. I will take that advice and I thank you for it. It seems that it's necessary to buy these strings individually in order to compile a set for 12-string.

The guitar used on "The One I Love" was a Rickenbacker 360/6 jetglo. Peter Buck did not really begin to use Les Pauls until the "Green" tour around 1989. The amp used was a fender (can't remember which one exactly) though you can get the same sound out of a Vox. To get the somewhat distorted sound, try using a "Digitech" Hothead. Also, when you play, use arpeggios and have a "drone" string. Listen to the song "Seven Chinese Brothers" then learn it. There is a string , the 4th, that he just drones on. It gives it a bright and back up sound to it. Also on your amp settings, set Bass:2 Middle:3 Treble:10, This always gives me the Jangle sound on my 360/6.

Yeah, I sure am glad Peter went back to his Rick 360!

Yeah, but this is a very recent incarnation of the band. Don't forget that thet recorded the song in 1987 (release date November 1987, IRS IRM146 for the 7" single). It's possible that he used a guitar other than the 360 for the song, but I doubt it. Buck had a brief flirtation with Gretsches and Fender Deluxe Telecasters during "Reckoning," but I don't think he started playing Les Pauls until "Monster," which came out in 1994. He seemed to go back to Ricks after the "Monster" tour.

Check out how my 360-12 FG sounds on You Tube! I'm not well known or even that great of a guitar player...but my Rickenbacker 360-12 still sounds great in spite of my skill or lack there of!

After reading the forum this past summer, I made the decision to change the stock high gains out for the "Vintage Toasters" (7.4k) and they really have given me the sound I was looking for.

These are awesome guitars that are extremely well made and I recommend them highly to everyone that has contacted me about them. As we all know, nothing else sounds like a Rickenbacker! - Buddy Clontz

I beg to differ, Buddy, you're a superb guitarist - my favorite on youtube! I've learnt so much watching you AND it was you who inspired me to start playing again in 2007...a year later I bought a FG 330/6!
