Up for sale, a 2018 Rickenbacker 330 in like-new condition and in perfect working order, finished in Matte Black and complete with the original hardshell case, factory paperwork, and case candy. A pristine example of one of Rickenbacker's most iconic models, this 330 sounds like a great Rickenbacker should, with a clear, open voice that translates well through the original Hi-Gain pickups. While Rickenbacker advertises the single coil pickups used on its modern instruments under the "Hi-Gain" moniker, the realities of the pickup's tone couldn't be further from the name. The classic Ric sparkle and top end percussive cut are present, with a jangle and sweetness that’s hard to beat. Weighing 7lbs 10oz, the acoustic resonance of the neck through body design is unique among hollowbody guitars. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, this guitar plays smoothly with low action and solid intonation.

The neck has a round C-shaped profile carve with full shoulders, due in large part to the very thick rosewood slab fretboard, measuring .860" deep at the 1st fret and .955" at the 12th. The rosewood slab fingerboard has a satin finish and the frets are flawless, playing cleanly up the 24 3/4" scale and 24 fret range. The nut measures 1.650" in width, and the headstock boasts Schaller tuners which turn smoothly and hold pitch well with gleaming chrome plating.

The semi-hollow maple body has the 330's dual crescent moon cutaways, two-tier pickguard, chrome "R" tailpiece, single cats eye F hole, and Hi Gain single coil pickup pair. The chrome hardware shines like new, the plastic parts are clean as can be, and the Matte Black satin finish has nary a scratch on it.

The original hardshell case is included, along with the factory paperwork and polish cloth.
