Born in the Sixties: Electric Guitars
1965 Rickenbacker Model 1993
Rickenbackers were sold in the UK in the sixties through the distributor Rose, Morris. The features of the Rickenbackers made for Rose, Morris (like this guitar) differed subtly from the American versions. The most notable change was a traditional “F” shaped soundhole, compared to the “slash” soundhole of the U.S. models. This Rose, Morris Rickenbacker Model 1993 has features are similar to those of a 330/12 except for the body binding on the top and back—this style of binding was used on the original 360s before the change to a rounded top in mid-1964.
