Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1997 Rickenbacker 350V63 Liverpool in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original silver hardshell case and hangtags. This uncommon left-handed Ric is essentially a 24 3/4" scale length version of the 325 (which had a shorter 21" scale length), made famous by John Lennon in the early days of the Beatles.

Tonewoods include a semi-hollow maple body, maple neck, and a slab rosewood fretboard, and this Ric is featherweight at 6lbs 4oz. The trio of Toaster Top pickups are wound slightly hotter than later reissues, delivering plenty of sparkling percussive cut, harmonic richness, and quintessential Rickenbacker jangle. This 350V63 has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-49 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

-Shape: Chunky C, full shoulders, measuring .900” 1st fret, .920” 12th fret

The gloss Jetglo finish exhibits only a bit of faint scuffing along the treble side of the pick path and just a couple faint finish scratches in the clear coat. The smooth gloss on the neck profile is flawless.

The original silver tolex hardshell case with blue plush interior is included, along with the hangtag and manual.
