What Reidys say...

The Rickenbacker single coil pickup is one of, if not the brightest sounding pickups on the market today,
and, along with the chambered body, they give the 330 some fantastic tonal characteristics. Probably my
favourite within the series, this guitar sounds particularly good when coupled with a Vox AC30,
especially for that British 60s sound! The look of the guitar is fantastic; its geometrically designed
body shape has to be on of the most impressive out there. The 330 was first introduced in 1958 and since then
has only had slight alterations including the addition of an extra few frets (24 now).
With a list of users
that includes Johnny Marr, Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, The Edge, Tom Petty and Pete Townshend amongst
many others, the 330 has been established as an icon in its own right.

The extra 6 strings don't make it any more difficult to play and enable you to create sounds you wouldn't normally be able to, a must-have for anyone looking to recreate the sounds of the 60s!

by Richard Blenkinsop, Reidys Guitar Specialist

What Rickenbacker say...

Basically the same as Model 330 but with twelve strings. Careful acoustic research has resulted in the full, rich and warm sound of this popular model. Two single coil pickups on a full size body are accented by a traditionally shaped sound hole. The 24 fret Rosewood fingerboard is punctuated by dot inlay fret markers, with full double cutaways permitting access to all the frets. Standard output is monaural through a single jack plate. Also available with an additional pickup (Model 340/12) and as six string versions with either 2 or 3 pickups (Model 330 and Model 340 respectively).

Estimated delivery times for out of stock items are to be used as a guide only, these items may take longer than estimated to arrive.

Courier Tracking

Most UK deliveries are shipped by our trusted courier, DPD. You'll receive an email with a delivery day, tracking and a one hour estimated delivery window on the morning of delivery. While we can't specify the time of the delivery, if it's not convenient, you can arrange directly with DPD for an alternative delivery date or request the parcel be left with a neighbour.

For heavier items, we usually ship UK deliveries by TNT. You will receive an email with tracking details when we ship your order. 

Delivery Charges

Delivery to mainland UK addresses is free on all orders over £99. Delivery charges are based on the size and weight of your order and, in some cases, your location. A standard next working day carriage charge for UK mainland addresses is shown on the shopping basket page, but you can change delivery service later in the checkout.

Delivery Couriers

We use a few different delivery couriers, depending on the items being sent, your location, and the delivery service you've chosen:

Most orders will need to be signed for and we advise you make sure to check your parcel/s for any damage before signing. If no-one is available at your address, a card will be left so you can arrange a re-delivery directly with the courier. Redirection of an order after it's been dispatched may incur an extra charge from the courier.

Deliveries to Northern Ireland, UK non-mainland, and European addresses will cost more, and carriage charges will be shown at the checkout before you place your order. Free delivery offers may not apply to some remote/Scottish Highlands addresses.
