Who did you think 'Peter' was..?  Cool

I realize that there's more than a few - I think that's why I thought it might be fun to narrow it down to, say, five or so.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rickenbacker_players

Fogerty I'd have more as a Les Paul man, Marr a 355 or even a Fender Jaguar these days, The Edge - an Explorer; Tom Petty's a good call, mind. So - one in, one out - who makes way for Charlie T. Wilbury Jr?

I rather thought Peter was Peter Townshend. Although he mainly plays a Strat now, as I recall.

It's a tweaked Eric Clapton model, I believe. You'd think they'd make him one of his own, wouldn't you?  Roll Eyes

I wonder how many of those he's smashed up at about £1500+ a time? Not that he pays for his kit.

Yeah...definitely Pete T (in early Who).  McGuinn's got to be tops (on 12 string).  Paul Kantner was predominantly a Ricky user.  Paul & Bruce (Jam).  Lennon (up to about '65)  Oh & not forgetting me!!  Grin  I had a 330 in the early 80s but I never really got on with it - Cost me a bleddy fortune  - but I still regret selling it...

Cheers,

I can foresee me getting very emotionally involved and throwing wobblers about decisions I don't agree with.  It's probably the guitar brand I have the closest bond with.  They're not without their problems, but nothing else makes that sound.

No, fella, mine's a 660/12.  Chosen because it has a wider neck than most other Ricky 12s.  Looks like this:-

Dammit.  It's not mine. I was trying to find a similar one on the web.  Just imagine that with 12 strings.  They look much alike anyway because of the infamous Rickenbacker 12-string headstock design.

Tom Petty agreed the specs with Rickenbacker, and he wanted the tailpiece they used before the R-shaped one.  Look at photos of George Harrison's first 12-string - it has the same style of tailpiece.

And here it is in maple finish on Rickenbacker's own website:
