Jeff's Rickenbacker 360/12 12-String

After receiving his first advance check from Sony, Jeff purchased his Rickenbacker 360/12 from a music store located somewhere on Bleecker St. in NYC. He used this guitar on songs such as Last Goodbye, What Will You Say, Vancouver and Kangaroo. He kept his Rickenbacker tuned to Open-G, while his Telecaster stayed in standard tuning.

Jeff's Rickenbacker has often been mistaken for a few other Rickenbacker 12-string models. The most notable of these being the Rickenbacker 381/12. The differences are such that the pickups on the 381/12 have the double lined "toaster top" pickups, and Jeff's 360/12 had the standard issue button tops. Additionally, the pickguard between the two is subtley different. The most noticeable difference though comes in body styles. For instance, the 360/12 that Jeff played on was only bound once, at the back of the body, whereas the 381/12 is bound at the top and back. The other difference is that the 381/12 has a far more pronounced lower cutaway, whereas the 360/12 is more contoured.
