If the weather has had cold snaps, or been in a cargo airplane, that's wise. But if everywhere between point A and B has been moderate you should be fine.

She’s here! Why do these get bad reps for the neck??? It plays great to me! So what’s really nice, is that we just had our second child in March. This guitar was made in March of this year so not only will he have a birthday year guitar one day, but also his month.

How do you all register for the warranty? Just send in the card? The only proof of purchase I have is an email so I can print that at least.


Lastly, here she is!!!

I'd think that would work. I imagine RIC just verifies it went to that dealer.

Can anyone speak to how the current 360 necks compare to the current 330s? Thinking of maybe picking up a Jetglo 330.

I would expect them to feel the same.

Of course, one Rickie would be lonely by itself, Scotty!

As for necks on 330s and 360s, they seem to be the same shape to me. It's funny but so far everyone who came visit and never had played a Rickie thought the neck of my 360 was great!

Need some help. Ive got a bit of a snag. A few years ago, I had carpal tunnel release surgery on both wrists. I have finicky hands and some guitars work and some don’t. I’ve stopped trying to quantify what works and what doesn’t, but I think I have some discomfort with this particular neck. I am 100% fine with the width. I think it’s great! If anything, I need one with a thinner neck. Just not as chunky. Any advice on what years I should look at? I’m happy to list it for trade in the forum if there’s a thinner neck out there! This guitar is so alive. Just my hands!

Mid 60's to late 80's on most models, including the 330/360.
