1966 Rickenbacker340/6 – MapleGlo


Here’s a nicely preserved, fully original 1966 Rickenbacker 340/6 in MapleGlo! The model number denotes three pickups with standard trim and six strings. By 1966, the 340 featured a 1-1/2” deep body, giving this guitar a very comfortable feel when playing. These “toaster” style pickups provide the perfect jangly chime that Rickenbacker is so famous for, accompanied by a “blend” knob so you can easily dial in a specific sound. This guitar is in beautiful condition, with hardly any wear, and the contrast between the light maple grain and dark Bubinga fretboard is so gorgeous! There is a very small crack located at the end of the soundhole, although this is completely stable.
