Rickenbacker 325 - Alternetives?
« on: October 16, 2007, 12:03:39 AM »
Hi! I'm a Beatles fan (yeah me too) and I'm intrested of getting some
sound of the Fab Four. Bought a Epiphone Casino and is keen of getting a Rickenbacker.
Saw a 1964 Rickenbacker 325 (made at later date) for 3500 Euro, is somewhat
above my price range. Is there an alternetiv (maybe another model of Rickenbacker)
or a good copy? Is manly intrested in the sound. Bults and nobs less priority.
Please?

Hi and welcome to this forum. The 325 is a very special Rickenbacker model due to its size. This also gives it a slightly special sound. 
The price tag is very high for the guitar you mention. It must be a 325C58 or 64.
If you buy a standard 330 you can get away with half the cost and you will get an absolutely brilliant guitar. There are also a guitar, model 350V63, that has a full size neck but a small body. This one is probably the best alternative.
