The price seems reasonable for a non-standard colour!

Is there any picture of this colour so far, what shade is it exactly?

After the 481/12 and that bass I was thinking it might be something like that. Interesting colour, but would like to see a picture of an actual 330 or 360 with it! Might be a nice replacement for the 340! :D

I hope they remove the Lochnessglo previews for actual colour soon!

GG have informed me that the first of these will be arriving at GG hopefully by February 2012, the 330s should start arriving in March, with the whole order completed by late Spring.
GG won't have a picture of these until they actually arrive, so hopefully we will get to see some pictures via Rickenbacker, before they leave the factory.

Do we know if they will have white, black or gold plastic?

Black wouldn't be what I'd put on it.

Gretsch do a very nice "Walnutburst" - as Guitar Guitar have called it. I would like it if the Ricks are similar. :D

Yes, that would be so cool, and quite retro, which gets my vote. :)
A wide dark brown border with a reddish brown centre would be perfect.
I can't wait to see the finished colour.

Choccieglo, Darkroastcoffeeglo ist what comes to mind when I see those drums. I rather hope it'll be more like the two one-offs.
