Hey UG

So, recently I played on a Rickenbacker guitar. It was a 12 string, but it was 'cut down' to 6 strings. I loved the sound and looks of the guitar, thought I can never afford it. Are there any good 'look a like' rickenbackers?

Thanks

Googled 'rickenbacker copies' and as far as I can tell, Rickenbacker are "very agressive about enforcing their patents", to quote what I found. So i'm guessing most companies making Rick copies get shut down pretty quick.

Exactly.

Their 650 models go for a tad cheaper than the 360 and such. I once found a 650 D on ebay that sold for 800. Save up, it's worth it.

Hmmm I dunno. Just search Agile Harm on Rondomusic.com.
