Guys, seriously, this may be one of the best guitars I have ever owned. It’s a late 90s Ricky 360 in a relatively rare Ric custom colour creatively named “turquoise”. *
I used to own a Ricky 325V59, which was cool and beautiful, but just didn’t play well. The experience kind of prejudiced me against Rickenbacker for a long time…I mean I always like their looks, but I was subconsciously averse to owning another one lest** it feel/play as poorly as my 325.
I am happy to report this guitar has more than erased any negative feelings I had about the play-ability of Rics. it’s awesome from a photography point of view as well - which, as you can imagine, is VERY important to me! :D
* I kind of wish it had one of those wacky 50s-style Ric colours names. Perhaps “Aquaglo”, or “Oceanglo”. Even “Contaminatedwithchemicalsglo” or “Chernobylglo” would have been preferable!
**this may be the first time in my entire life I have used the word “lest”. And I feel good about it.
