1991 Rickenbacker 330 Fireglo

The Rickenbacker shown here in this post is a 330 Fireglo made in their home factory in Santa Ana, California in January, 1991. It’s a beautiful guitar just to look at for sure. And it has the unmistakable Ric sound. You can go either jangly Beatles and REM or muffly warm fullness. It’s not a chameleon at all. It’s a specialist in those two areas.
