Sure 'tis pretty. Would you get that exact one though, or another, made to those specs. Would any of this be a problem?

A thread worth reading:

Actually, when I saw this my first thought was if only they made a 12 string version. I sold my Danophobe mostly because of the stigma, and I probably won't ever spend Rickenbacker money on a niche guitar I'll only use on special occasion. I also love the look of this but don't think I really need another 6 string.

May think it over for a bit and message the seller to see how much more a 12 string version would be if it's even something they could do.

Tbh I reckon it’ll be okay with some work done.

Resell will be shite though.

When I sold my 4003 copy I kept getting the listings pulled by those insecure pussies at Rickenbacker.

Brand Name: Human
Suitable For: Professional Performance

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me Laughing

In all seriousness I'm sure it's about the same quality as the Gibson fakes listed on the left (which aren't bad), but personally I can't support buying such a blatant fake. Except I kinda would because of how Rickenbacker are dicks about copies yet refuse to put out anything for people on a budget.

It looks lovely though.

The Rickenbacker CEO is such a bad dickhead that I endorse these copies wholeheartedly.

Reading about how much of a dick he is makes me want to buy one for that reason alone.

He's such a fucking shite.

That's really rare as a Rickenbacker, if they ever made any at all.

There's a 480, which is like that but with no body binding and dots on the fretboard. That one is a 481, but the ones I've seen all have slanted frets and big humbuckers.
