Just as an update, I have received no word since my broken R tailpiece arrived at RIC (March 1st) as to the replacement status on whether it is being processed or a new R has been sent to me as of yet. My latest e-mail to RIC service has not been answered as of yet. Hopefully they will contact me when the new R is sent out with a tracking number soon.

This morning, I received my new R tailpiece from RIC. Tomorrow, I should receive new strings and will be able to put my 366/12 back together again. Thank you RIC! :D

Bonus! :mrgreen:

I received my strings today so...I have put them on and the 366/12 is back in service! I have attached a photo of part of the progress. As a side, when I think of Rickenbacker Fireglo, I think of the Fireglo on mine as true fireglo. The translucent shade of red used as well as the maple peeking through on the edges. :D

How does one go about getting a new chrome R tailpiece for a 360/12?

I would have kept the old original tailpiece and had it welded and rechromed by a metal specialist. The new ones crack a lot faster. Read up on the complaints about this issue for the past 10 years or more.

I have a 1966 370-12 MG and the chrome is all worn out but the metal is still intact. If it ever cracks, I am not going to bother with one of the new ones. No thank you. I know how to get it repaired.

Well, it's been years since I've logged on to this sight and I think this thread is the last one I generated. Any hoo, how 'bout an update with this 'new' tailpiece! After all these years, it's still holding up and going strong. No issues. I might add, that 660 is none the worse for wear as well. Still a great guitar as is my 380L pz and 360 which I converted to toasters in the last couple of years.

Also, I'm glad to see this place is still going good. I hope the 'Covid 19' thing hasn't got you all down and hope things go back to normal soon!
