Rickenbacker are a well loved, iconic company from California who make electric guitars and basses. The company started in the 1930s and actually produced the world's first electric guitar.
Rickenbacker guitar designs are both highly original and very traditional. More than any other manufacturer, Rickenbacker have held true to their heritage. Keeping both designs and production to how they have always been, they manufacture their guitars in small numbers in California and never incorporate modern technology into their designs or hardware. Rickenbacker fans are very particular about this, making it a win-win for both company and player to continue with this method.
Rickenbacker make both solid bodied and semi hollow guitars as well as very famous bass designs, all sharing the same art deco-influenced design flair which has distinguished them since day one.
Rickenbacker guitars are associated with a distinctly 'jangly' tone and their 12 string electric guitars are highly prized for their distinctive sound. In contrast, their bass guitars (particularly their most famous model, the 4003) are known for their thick, growly sound which is every bit as distinguishable as the guitar tones, albeit for completely different reasons.
