2006 ish 660/12 with 1964 Vibroverb ( JBL 15" ).
Thanks Mark for the info. I never would have thought of looking for all those details.One of the triumphs of Rickenbacker design is where the body shape allowed them to place the bridge and neck pickup. They squished the body shape such that the bridge sits over the hips of the body, rather than the waist, like an SG does. They also figured out how to mount the neck such that the neck pickup can sit closer to the end of the fingerboard, rather than having to sit a bit away from it to make room for the neck tenon, as on an SG. This allows for the neck and bridge pickups to sit farther away from each other, and provide better tonal contrast between the 3 pickup selections. As much as I like some of what SGs do, I was never thrilled with the manner in which the 3 pickup settings sounded too much like each other. The Rickenbacker gets past that and allows for a stronger bass.
I hope the neck is wide enough. I once tried a friend's vintage Ricky 360 12-string and was sorely disappointed by the unwieldiness of the neck. It was barely wide enough for 6 strings, let alone 12. I understood very quickly why Roger McGuinn's solo on Eight Miles High was so spazzy. It was simply difficult to be nimble on that neck. Fine for strumming but not for solos.
But that's a pretty piece you got there.
