1995 Rickenbacker 610/12

Serial # F8 7529. Discontinued shortly after this example was built in June of 1995, the Rickenbacker 610/12 is essentially as slightly dressed-down version of the popular 620/12 with mono output wiring. The classic solidbody 12 string of rock and roll (think Tom Petty and Mike Campbell), the 610 and 620 12 strings feature a maple body with neck through construction, 'Cresting Wave' body shape, Hi-Gain pickups, and floating tailpiece.

This example, at nearly 20 years old, is in remarkable condition. It looks just about new, actually, and has been carefully cared for through these two decades. It's completely original but features a replacement intonation-adjustable 12-string bridge (the original is in the case). Maple-Glo finish, white double raised pickguards, and chrome hardware.

Meticulously set-up by us (not a small task), the guitar plays beautifully and is a whole lot of fun to play. Short scale length of 24.75", and a nut width of 1-5/8".

With original case, owner's manual, and polishing cloth.
