350/12
« on: March 02, 2016, 01:16:26 PM »
Hi, new member here, based in UK.

I am looking for a Ric 350-12string (full scale length but small "John Lennon" shape body) to go with my 620/12, and was wondering if anyone on this forum has one they may want to part with.

Cheers........Brian

Hello Brian, welcome to this forum. I haven't checked the UK market but on the "other side" I have found this one:

https://www.gbase.com/gear/rickenbacker-used-1990-rickenbacker-35-jetglo

I once had a FireGlo 350/12. Very nice guitar. Light weight and very convenient to play. Right now I have a 360/12V64 for my 12-string needs... :D

Best regards,
Björn

PS. I will search the UK market, too.

Maybe this one could be of some interest?

It's not exactly what you ask for but I guess it is a fine complement to your 620/12

Thanks for the replies.

Unfortunately, the one in the USA is out of my price range, particularly when you add on import duty; also, I would not buy any instrument without trying it first!

The one at GuitarGuitar in the UK is exactly what I'm looking for, unfortunately, it's only got half as many strings as I want!! ;D

Finding a 350/12 (at the realistic price) seems to be like seeking the holy grail............. I'll just have to keep looking.

Cheers.............Brian

Sorry about the 6-string 350. I didn't look close enough. I'll keep on looking for a guitar for you. Stay tuned!

As it happens, that 350 is in a store not far away from where I live and I had the opportunity to call in yesterday to take a look.
It is without doubt, the best Rickenbacker I have ever played, small and comfortable, fantastic looking and the chambered body gives the instrument a wonderful acoustic kind of timbre.

So, my patience has paid off; I recently took delivery of a pre-owned 350V63/12 in amber fireglow that I found in the USA at the right price!

I would normally NEVER buy a guitar without trying it, but these models are so rare, and as I had a chance to buy from a very well respected dealer in the USA with excellent reviews and at the right price, I decided to take the risk.
I was more than delighted when it arrived; in original unblemished vintage case, opened to reveal the guitar in absolutely perfect, mint, almost as new condition.

Having gigged it four times now, the guitar is all and more that I could have hoped for.........the timbre of the smaller & lighter chambered body, the three original toaster pickups all in a beautiful amber fireglow finish!

I had searched for a long time one of these rare Rics and now I am in Rickenbacker 12 string jangle heaven!!
