    My Little Rickenbacker 325 V59 arrived safely yesterday from Utah. It slept in the box for the night to acclimatize.

    I would sincerely like to thank the good folks at Guitar Chimp.

    I would also like to thank whoever owned this little gem prior to me. The untouched owners Care manual, sealed tool kit/sealed polishing cloth were all nestled in the case.

    GC rated the guitar/original vintage style grey case as 9.5...I have to disagree. Out of a perfect score of ten, the little Ric is a definite twelve. A ''closet classic'' for sure! the guitar/case is in brand new/unused condition, and for what it is, was fairly priced.

    I'm a happy man!

    Someday I would like to spend just 15-20 minutes with a Rick to hear it and feel it and play it. I’ve ever even seen one in Portland..

    That's really cool! The knobs tie the whole retro vibe together.

    Oh that is cooler than cool. My first great guitar was Rickenbacker... which sadly bit the dust to pay the rent one month.

    I love that guitar, play it long and well. What a stunner!! Is that a single jack or does it have the dual rick-o-sound inputs??
