UTILIZATION

This guitar plays very well. It has more frets than I was used to but I quickly adjusted and actually enjoyed playing some higher leads. The neck is very smooth which makes it a blast to play. When I first got mine the action was off (the high e would buzz sometimes because it was so close to the fretboard). This could have been due to the previous owner but it was easy to fix. I haven't messed around with stereo inputs too much but one time I put one input into a distorted amp and the other into a clean amp. When I switched between the pickups I could instantly add distortion. This was pretty fun to play with but I don't know how practical it would be in a live situation.

SOUNDS

This guitar sounds great through every amp I've played it through. I've tried it through an Orange Tiny Terror, Fender Bassman, Vox AC4TV, Hughes & Kettner 20th anniversary, and a few others. It has beautiful cleans but it can also handle a lot of distortion. As a big Beatles fan, I wanted this guitar for it's legendary jangle sound. It was actually a bit disappointing in that aspect. The high gain pickups aren't nearly as jangly as the old 60's toaster pickups. You can buy a set of toaster pickups from the Rickenbacker website but I ended up liking the tone so much that I kept the stock pickups. This guitar has a wide variety of tones but I like to use it for blues, rock, jazz, soul, and funk.

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar, although expensive, was totally worth it. I don't think I'll ever let this leave my collection of gear. Everything I do with it just sounds fantastic. If I were made of money I would buy another so I could have the toaster pickups or even the 12 string version.
