I forgot all about this thread.

Here is one I picked up last year, it's a '73 360/12 in the slightly brighter/redder shade of Burgundyglo than earlier ones. Last of the 60s features too, like 21 frets and crushed pearl inlays.

I had a 650 BG for a while which sold via Andy to another person. The colour was great, the neck for my small hands a bit too wide but played more than well enough. I put HB1s on my 360 even!

I hope some OS 360s show up in this thread, my mind has been hung up on the thought of converting my 330-12 to a 360-12 someday and I haven’t decided if I want to stay with burgundy-glo or change it to fireglo.

Dark Burgundyglo has always been my favourite RIC finish. April 73.

Indeed, and even different from your '72 (posted earlier in this thread).

Burgundyglo was all over the place back then!

Here’s the ‘72 330-12 I got off Collin last year. I’ve done a bridge, tail piece and knob swap to suit my preferences and logged A LOT of hours onto this guitar, my previous Ric 12 maybe got picked up once or twice a week for some play time, this one basically gets played on a daily basis, I love this thing, in fact I’m going to stop typing now and go play it.

I got to play that one on many occasions - you have a real gem there!
