What does this Rickenbacker have to do with Liverpool? Indeed, it's not difficult to guess ... of course – The Beatles! Who doesn't immediately think of John Lennon and his black Rickenbacker. But what many do not know: John Lennon's first Rickenbacker 325 was not black, but indeed Mapleglo, just like the guitar offered here! History says that John bought his blonde Rickenbacker second-hand in Hamburg and played it afterwards in the legendary Star Club. In Lennon’s own words: "The Rickenbacker is the most beautiful guitar – the action is rediculously low!" And for those who want it to be completely authentic, plug the blonde Ricky in a Fender Tweed Deluxe, just like John Lennon used to do at the Star Club. BTW ... This fine tube amp is also available in a hand-wired custom version at Guitar-Place. Just go to the Guitar-Place amp website once!
The Rickenbacker 350V63 Liverpool Vintage Reissue is reminiscent of the classic 325 series. However, it has been given some extremely useful improvements that will benefit today's guitarist. For example the scale length. Obviously John Lennon got along well with a 3/4 scale length, it made sense to equip the 350V63 Liverpool with a common standard scale length. The original Accent Vibrato from the 325 series has been replaced by a fixed Trapeze Tailpiece.
Finally, another anecdote about this: Because Brian Epstein, manager of The Beatles, wanted his boys to be uniformly presented in black, John had his Rickenbacker repainted in 1962. Black clothes, black guitars and black amps. So if you prefer a Rickenbacker 350V63 Liverpool Vintage Reissue in black (Jetglo) – no problem ... We also have them on sale! Just like in the color Fireglo and in the rare color Midnight Blue. Just have a look!
