"Rickenbacker 360-12 CW Carl Wilson" in the color Fireglo year 2001 incl. original Rickenbacker case and certificate.
Only very few of this Rickebacker 360-12CW Carl Wilson Signature were built. 250 were built as 6-string guitars and another 250 were built as 12-string guitars.
The 360-12CW Carl Wilson impresses with special features that are unique to this model:
- At the request of Carl Wilson, this model was equipped with a thinner top/back, as was the case in the 60s. The top has a thickness of 5mm.
- Thanks to the thinner top, the weight of this guitar is lower than that of any other Rickenbacker 360 model: this one weighs just 3kg. For comparison. An ordinary Rickenbacker 360 weighs around 3.5kg.
- As in the 60s, the guitar was fitted with a checkerboard binding, which is only reserved for the top models from Rickenbacker.
- A beautiful figured maple was used for this guitar.
By the way:
We currently also have a 6-string version of this guitar on offer.
