rickenbacker 325 review

There are four types of electric guitars: regular solid body (ash, alder, linden), mahogany solid body, semi-acoustic, and semi-hollow. This semi-hollow is made from a single bank of maple (normally two pieces of quarter-sawn maple glued end-to-end to prevent warping). Three sonic chambers are then hollowed out from the back, and then a slab of maple is glued to the back. One of the sonic chambers is under the bridge, and this creates a unique tone. Rickenbacker is the only company that I know of which creates guitars using this original method, but only some of their guitars are made this way. The others are mostly of the semi-acoustic class, and are also of unusual construction.
Most guitarists should try all four types, so don’t overlook the 325, which is of the semi-acoustic class. It has a 21-inch scale (82% of regular), so to create the same string tension as on a 25.5-inch scale, use GHS Guitar Boomers 11 15 18 26 36 50. They’re non-nickle, which brings out the twangy harpsichord tone. Actually the guitar that I have, which is a 320 from 1981, is very similar to this one; the main difference is the pickup configuration.
Expect it to cost more, but remember that it is made in the USA only, and that it is very unique.

rickenbacker 325 v59

This model is a vintage reissue of the guitar John Lennon bought in Hamburg 1960. John´s guitar was a 1958 model Capri 325. Originally it had two control knobs but was upgraded to four knobs in 1959 before being shipped to Hamburg. The original guitar had a single gold pickguard and a Kauffman Vibrato tailpiece. John replaced the Kauffman with a Bigsby Vibrato tailpiece. He also had a Bigsby bridge, while the 325V59 has a Rickenbacker bridge. This reissue model has double pickguards and a Bigsby tailpiece. It´s also equipped with TV-style control knobs, just like the original guitar. Scroll down for more pictures!

rickenbacker 325

The Rickenbacker 325 was the first of the Capri series of hollow body guitars released in 1958 by Rickenbacker. It was designed by Roger Rossmeisl, a guitar craftsman from a family of German instrument makers. Production models were 20-3/4″ short scale, dot fretboard inlays, and a small (12-3/4″ wide) body. The body is unbound, semi-hollow, with 2’oclock angled soundhole (although re-issues lack a sound hole due to the Lennon connection), and boasts the “crescent moon”-style cutaways. This series is currently available only in “C” reissue form. These instruments gained prominence due to John Lennon’s use of a 325 during the early years of The Beatles. John Lennon’s 1958 model was among the very first batch made and has the pre production feature of a solid top, i.e.: no soundhole. All subsequent production 325. 315, & 310 guitars had soundholes until the 1970s.
