Where are they now?

Postby (tnc2) » Sun Dec 31, 2017 1:40 pm

this is borderline silly but over the years Ive owned tons of old 360-12s and 320s, I love looking at the registry and finding my old guitars, I found an old 70 381 I owned. Ive never been able to find the Black Cherry 1968 366-12 I owned, when I received the guitar someone had painted the back black to hide a large belt buckle rash, it was ugly so I removed the black to find the original finish with a large wear mark. To be honest Ive owned so my 60s 360-12s I cant remember if its a 366 or a 360, Im pretty sure if it was 366 the comb was missing, Im curious if anyone has seen it or owns it. i should have kept it :/

In the case of the 366/12, it's hard to know the whereabouts without the serial number (since a lot of 366/12 models were made). Still, that sounds pretty specific, so it might be possible that somebody knows this guitar based on your description.

Which 1970 381 did you own? There aren't many of those around (I owned a '69 model for a few years), so it's easier to track them.

the problem is that its been years and Ive owned a ton of Ricks so they start getting mixed up, Im pretty sure it was a late 60s maybe end up to a 70, 12 string, it had toasters and 21 fret neck, not sure if it was a 360 or a 366 :/ the black to red sunburst was original and odd.
heres the color on a 365WB.

the other odd guitar was a early 80's Azureglo Rickenbacker 320, I also had early 80's eggplant Burgundyglo 320 and a more lighter see through red 320, those are more common.

Here is a 366/12 for comparison.
