You have bought a grat guitar they are one of the best made. They have a sound that's like no other guitar. Good luck and once your hooked you will want another one. What amp do you play thru?

My first Rickenbacker was a Jetglo 4001 that I had bought new in '81. Every day I feel like I could kick myself for selling it.

My first Rick is a 2002 fireglo 660/6 with highly flamed maple body and very light weight, here is a pic:

Nice man, see, I didn't even play one in the store, I looked and ordered. Sometimes you have to trust the ratings. You can't pass these up.

Have patience, young Jedi. When you are ready, you will not have to look for the Rickenbacker; the Rickenbacker will find you...

Beware of the China made guitar stands, of the dark side are they...

A Jedi master can feel the jangle flowing through him...

Best of luck with your new axe!

To jangle and growl, patience you must have.

Nice guitar you have there!!!
I still have my first Rickenbacker that I bought new.
1983 Model 330 Fireglo and still in mint condition.

If you get a chance upgrade to the Vintage Case, I like the wood over the SKB type cases.
