Comments about Rickenbacker 660 Electric Guitar:

I play 50's and 60's style blues.The 660 has the right sounds,similar to a tele but richer.Good action and controls.Quality is superior to other U.S. brands except for gray marks in the fretboards of both examples.If not for fretboard appearance (play not affected) it would be an easy 5.

    Comments about Rickenbacker 660 Electric Guitar:

    This is right up there ( build quality) with the best example USA Gibsons and Fenders I have owned, if not better. The action and setup were superior right out of the box. This company is totally unique in their design, - the look and playing feel, unlike any other. Very vintage 60's vibe....looks snd sound / tone. I play it through a Supro Coronado . Nice combination that I recommend.
