Original 1960s case for Rickenbacker Rose Morris 1998

Hi folks, I have an old Rickebacker Rose Morris 1998 (3 pickup 6 string ) UK import from 1964. However, I have no case for it. Apparently the cases were silver on the exterior, blue on the interior and had a Rickenbacker badge logo near the carry handle. I'm looking to source an original case for it. These guitars came to the UK between 1964-66 so I understand if the case is not in great condition, but someone, somewhere must have one. Please help me here guys!!!!

Many thanks

Rickenbacker 420 set neck?

I’ve got an early 60’s 420 six string mapleglo and it has a set neck joint. Is this normal for this model? Do they usually have through necks? Any insight here? Thanks

Artists playing Rickenbacker

Hey everyone, check out this band called 'The Novellos'.
They use Rickenbacker guitars to get their great sound. I also found out that they are signed to SONS Records who only record using Rickenbackers! Its great that people are embracing who good Rickenbackers are so check them out.

I am the original owner of #785 and wish to sell this guitar.
Any suggestions?

Re: Rickenbacker 325C58 Problems


Its a real shame to here about that, I,ve been playing Rickenbackers for over 20 years and have 3 in my collection, I agree no customer service, and yes its all about the money, and if you look at there web site, all cheap labour and that means poor workmanship, I,m glad all mine are all over twenty years old and still are going strong. I too have B5`s on my 350`s I can`t understand the other set up ! The only thing I can think of in your case is take to YOUTUBE, I love the comments and reveiws, so maybe the people who think they can fobb you off will be suprised when people just wont buy a Ric, good luck and as a Ric-man its a real shame, your experience should have been a wonderful time, or if you can get one made like mine about 20 years earlier, I think they cared back then ! Rickenbacker need a kick in the pants, and its good that you`ve spoken out !..I know i wont buy one now reading your comments and the way they treated you ! good luck bloke !!.

Rickenbacker string spacing

I am a fingerstyle player and find that the string spacing on the Rickenbackers that I've played to be just a little too small. Are there any Rickenbacker 6-strings that feature a larger string spacing than the typical 1 5/8" nut? Thanks.

Ric 360/12v64 satin fire glo finish

I have a ric 360/12v64 fire glo finish guitar that was manufactured in April of 1994. It has a satin finish. All other Rics I have seen have a glossy finish. I purchased this guitar new back in 94 from a Ric dealer. I never really paid much attention to the finish (didn't know much about them then. Was the this the normal finish for a fire glo? Why would this guitar be a satin finish? Please help me with you information. --Kelley

Is My Neck Warped?


I have a 360 6 string RIC. I'm good about keeping up with neck adjustments, and before my last one, I made note that one side of the neck was bowed noticably more than the other. Upon bringing my guitar to my tech I made mention of this, only to bring my guitar back home and see that this one side was still bowed. Angry, I decided to go get myself a 1/4 inch nut driver wrench and take matters into my own hands.... What I found was that the bowed side of the neck could not be adjusted any further in the the direction it needed to go, ie., the rod for that side of the neck was almost completely tightened to the max. At the same time, the other truss rod had plenty of room for adjustment either way, and is currently adjusted appropriately. So, does this mean my neck is warped? I purchsed the guitar 21 months ago from Musicians Friend, and have always been mindful of temperature and temp changes. Comments thouhgts.... You have the floor.
Thank You ,
