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.
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.
