Charactered Maple Body

Constructed of characterful maple, the Rickenbacker 660 Fireglo Semi-Acoustic Guitar is a stylish instrument with a distinct and unique design. Its maple body delivers a complex and clear tone with ample warmth, plus heightened highs and tightened lows. Additionally, its ergonomic curves make the body lightweight and allow for full access to the upper frets.

Finished in Rickenbacker's popular Fireglo finish, as well as classic checkered black and white binding, the 660 will stand out from any crowd. Additional features include a vintage-style cream pickguard, pearloid triangle inlays, Gotoh Vintage-type tuners, and the Rickenbacker branding on the headstock.

Neck-Through Maple Neck

The rosewood fingerboard is bound to a maple neck for added stability and offers a stylish look. The neck-through construction achieves an extraordinary amount of sustain. With a slim, sleek design and excellent low action, this neck-through design eliminates the need for a guitar heel and provides easier access to the higher frets. In addition, the guitar's neck produces a tight and warm tone with the maple offering a snappy attack with sizzling highs and firm lows, whilst the rosewood helps keep the tone mellow and offers some sparkle to the highs and thickens up the lows. Another benefit of this type of neck construction allows the guitar to stay in tune for longer, therefore eliminating the need to constantly re-tune during performances.

Toaster Top Pickups

The 660 is electronically engineered to the exacting standards of the vintage reissue series including toaster top pickups for added authenticity. This duo of vintage single coil toaster top pickups yields a classic Rickenbacker Jangley tone that is bright, clear and slightly deep. Each pickup is equipped with six individual Alnico magnets set vertically inside the coil giving you that classic sound. Their distinctive chime will sit well in any mix, and is an ideal choice for players who prefer a jangley tone.
