Up for Sale is a
2006 Rickenbacker 330 Fireglo!
 
 Iconic Fireglo Sunburst Finish!
This is really cool. You are looking at a 2006 Rickenbacker 330 Fireglo Thinline Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar. The Model 330 is the most popular of Rickenbacker's model and for good reason. They have that great jangly kind of tone that only a Ricky can produce. These nearly hand built quality guitars are made in The USA and always have been. Rickenbacker never built cheaper quality guitars in Asia with the idea of making more sales. They are essentially "Custom Shop" quality guitars that are NOT mass produced.  

From The Web:

Shimmers and Snarls with Iconic Rock Attitude

The Rickenbacker Model 330 is your chance to take a page from rock 'n' roll's playbook. These iconic guitars, with their distinctive looks and jangly tones, have found their way into the hands of the Who to R.E.M., Jimmy Page to Tom Petty, the Smiths to Radiohead. Today's 330 features the hotter Hi-gain pickups and 24-fret fingerboard of the 1970s models, for a spankier sound and hotter overdrive characteristics. Back in full effect are the the classic lightweight semi-acoustic body, cat's eye soundhole, and "R" tailpiece.

 

Rickenbacker 330 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • All-maple construction provides a bright foundation
  • Hi-gain pickups and 5-knob layout allow for a wide range of tones

All-maple construction provides a bright foundation

Everything but the Rickenbacker 330's fingerboard is made from high-grade maple. Maple's density is partly responsible for the 330's famous sustain and top-end jangle and shimmer. Maple is also very stable, aiding in maintaining the structural integrity of the neck. The thick rosewood fingerboard adds a touch of warmth and harmonic richness to this otherwise bright instrument. Dot inlays give it the traditional 330 look.

 

 Hi-gain pickups and 5-knob layout allow for a wide range of tones

The heart and soul of all Rickenbackers are the proprietary electronics. In the 330 electric guitar you'll find a pair of Hi-gain single-coils. These pickups deliver the stringiness of many other single-coils, but with an aggressive cut that has driven so many rhythm and lead guitar tracks through the decades. A 5-knob control layout with "blend" knob gives you a wide range of sounds to play with.

Cosmetics: Excellent Condition. This guitar looks like it is just been taken out of the box. I cannot find any damage anywhere on this 330. Not a scratch. Pristine. The Rickenbacker case has some scratches and scuffs from sitting in the closet. If you are the personality type that picks everything apart, keep looking. Somehow you won't be satisfied. For everyone else you'll love this guitar. Mint Condition. It is used. Not perfect. All the "Mojo" and than some. Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story.
