Rickenbacker 360

The Rickenbacker 360 is a semi-acoustic electric guitar manufactured by Rickenbacker International Corporation (RIC). It is a deluxe model of the Rickenbacker 330, which share the trademark 'R' tail-piece, maple/walnut neck and the 24-fret fingerboard, but the 360 model has an extra jack input ('Rick-o-Sound') for stereo output, and has pearloid triangle fret inlays, instead of dots. The body is also more curved and rounded than the 330. A three-pickup model is available (370).

The Rickenbacker 360 is R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck's trademark guitar and guitar of choice, who makes use of its ringing, jangly sound.
