hey guys !

thank you for the eBay link !

what do you think of this guitar ? i don't really know what's a 320, is there any major difference with the 325 ?

how about the price, is 2499$ a fair price ? lefty's Rick are so rare I don't anything to compare it to see if the price is good or not...

The 320 is a standard production model, rather than a vintage re-issue. In this case it mean high gain pickups instead of toasters, and an R tailpiece instead of an Accent Vibrola. Both of these could be changed by you, and it would make it quite similar to a 325v63.

I don't know if Rickenbacker ever made any left handed v63's so this might be as close as you'll ever get. It does have some markings and replaced tuners, and seems a little high priced for an 80's Ric. Yes being a lefty is going to make it more expensive, but how many people are in the market for short scale left handed Rics??

You might use the eBay "make an offer" option and see what happens with a lower amount.

You could possibly try to find a 320 and then convert it. If you broaden your search, you may have better luck.
