Do '72 Toasters have more out put than '68s?

Postby (octagon) » Thu Sep 09, 2010 6:12 pm

I just wonder because my Electro ES-17 is louder than my 365 so I have to change my amp settings when I go from on to the other. It is louder than either pickup in the 365 in any setting in any input of my Fender amp. It's not a problem,I was just curious if this was because of the pickups or the difference between the semi hollow and a solidbodys.They both sound very different.

Its the one I bought from you.I found out yesterday mine was made in January 1972. I didn't know before because the original bridge with the serial number is gone but yesterday I found pictures of my guitar in the Rickenbacker Resource Register . It's unmistakable because of the wear. I told Peter about it and he agreed that it is the same guitar.

You are correct Mitch, that is the same guitar. I recognize those photos as they were sent to me by the previous owner. He sold me the guitar without the bridge and could never remember the exact year when I asked him.

'72 was a good year... 8)

That is one was my favorite albums ever! Did you know K.West was Bowie's way of paying tribute to Keith West?

Rickenbacker was still using the Electro and Ryder label during the seventies?
