Rickenbacker is an electric and bass guitar manufacturer and was founded in 1931 by Adolph Rickenbacher and George Beauchamp. They are currently based in California, USA.
The company has only recently restarted producing left handed guitars, and as such only a small selection are currently available.
Rickenbacker Left Handed Guitars and Bass Guitars
Careful acoustic research has resulted in the full, rich and warm sound of this popular model. Two single coil pickups on a full size body are accented by a traditionally shaped sound hole. The 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard is punctuated by dot inlay fret markers, with full double cutaways permitting access to all the frets. Standard output is monaural through a single jack plate.
This guitar broke all the rules of traditional styling when it appeared amid the ‘British’ sound of the 1960’s. Subtly updated through the years, this Deluxe hollow body with its special contour around the entire body perimeter, is still perhaps the most comfortable guitar of all. The bound body and Rosewood fingerboard, inlayed with triangular pearloid markers, provide an exceptionally attractive appearance. Stereo output is standard.
Note : The image above shows a flipped right handed 360, hence the back-to-front tailpiece. At the time of writing the left handed version is currently still in the works.
The Classic Rickenbacker bass – famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch and solid underlying bass. A subtle strip of binding graces the elegantly curved body and the Rosewood fingerboard. Deluxe triangular inlays and stereo capability are standard features.
The Rickenbacker website makes no mention of left handed availability, so I had to contact them to find out what was currently available. What I took from their email was that the 330 and 4003 are available right now and the 360 will be available shortly.
