Remember that RIC doesn't take special orders. Dealers simply order the models that they want in the current colors with current available options.

I am looking for a 360 to replace the one I sold years ago.. I have been told, but I can't verify, that they started using the CNC machine for necks in the mid '90s.. I had a '91 360 that felt Perfect, but I played a 2014 the other day and hated it.. But played a new 330 and it felt prefect.. So I guess I will have to play every one I can get my hands on until I find the one that "calls my name"..

Some Ric enthusiasts believe that 330 models necks are a little more chunky than comparable 360 models. That is my experience with my one 330 model. By chunky I mean a little heavier feel to it, a little more wood, where the nut and headstock evolve from the top of the neck.

On the other hand, I have four 360 models (one 360-12 from 2003, and three Double Bounds --- one V64-12, one V64-sixstringer both from the 90s and a 370 WB sixer dating from 1981) and all their necks have a different feel to them. These variances are all part of the Ric mystique. The '81 WB has the slimmest neck of all these and its my favorite.
