Rickenbacker 620 Fireglo 2005
Ric 620, made in USA 2005, Fireglo finish. Check out the majesty radiating off this one! The Ric 620 is a bucket-list guitar for me; they ooze cool. Tone-wise, you get a typical short/med scale thump and punch, but with a certain hi-fi snap and definition and a super warm midrange and a ready-for-takeoff hotness from the pickups... bliss. This will happily cover aggressive punk and grunge parts or jangly chiming cleans, it's got a lot going for it. The typical Ric D shape neck is easy to enjoy: a bit of meat in the back, but still on the slim side; it just works. The classic Fireglo finish has a lot of depth and life to it; against the aged cream binding and streaky rosewood board, it pops beautifully and is sure to shine on stage. Basically: it totally slaps and looks a million bucks.
