Love my Rics.
360/6 and 360/12 with Hi-Gains. Both 2014 models.
I lack experience with the high-gains but have two with toasters (a 330 and a 350/12v63) and can tell you they'll definitely provide the rich, clear Ric jangle you're looking for.
I did learn they like just a tiny bit of compression. I picked up a used JangleBox from one of our members here and can't overstate how much it helps nail down that classic Ric sound, especially with the 12 string.
Highly recommend getting one if you're going down the Ric path again.
Apologies @Ashley1983 I'd delete my post, but this site doesn't seem to allow edits after a certain time period. Got carried away with the others posting pictures of theirs.
Ironically (considering what site we're on) I couldn't bond with my Gretsch, hence ending up with the Rickenbacker to fill that semi acoustic slot in my collection. Just shows how different we are.
Good luck with the 360 v64/63
I had a 60s Era 335 (a 330 with a vibrato) and foolishly sold it years ago. It had the toaster pickups and sounded just like you think a Rickenbacker should sound. The high gain pickups do not sound the same and I can't understand why they obstinately stick to them as their standard pickups. Maybe some people prefer them to the toasters, but I don't get it.
Great pair T,
I've been trying to get this out of the case since it arrived two weeks ago, but being busy with my wife's stroke recovery, I just haven't had the time.
The Hofner ''Revolution'' Bass is new as well...I did manage the time to set it up and tune it...I have another 325 C58 incoming...should be here by weeks end.
To me, Rickenbackers are special...it's a personal thing!
