Rickenbacker electric guitars

Rickenbacker guitars are known for being first-class, and they are still manufactured in the United States to the same exacting standards that set them apart from the outset. With unique tones and beautiful finishes, these eye-catching instruments make captivating music suited to a wide variety of styles and genres. John Lennon used a Rickenbacker 325 in the early days of The Beatles, and the company's electric twelve-string 360/12 model became a key part of their sound on "A Hard Day's Night". Recent models include the walnut series (330W, 330W/12, 360W, 360W/12 and 4003W), which have walnut bodies and unfinished maple fingerboards.

Rickenbacker bass guitars

The first bass guitars Rickenbacker made were the 4000 series in 1957. Early adopters of Rickenbacker basses included Paul McCartney (The Beatles), Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), John Entwistle (The Who) and Pete Quaife (The Kinks). The distinctive Rickenbacker bass tone was also a favourite of UK punk and new wave bands of the late '70s and early '80s, played by the likes of Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Paul Simonon (The Clash) and Bruce Foxton (The Jam).
