I've never owned or even played a Rickenbacker, but I've admired the 360 since I was a kid back in the 60s. I've been offered a pretty nice one as trade for my Gibson ES-339. I do like the 339 a lot, and it fits my playing style (blues-rock lead). But I have other Gibsons that play/sound just as great as the 339. My '61 SG Reissue has been my "go to" Gibson for quite a while, and I can cover most anything with it. So, that brings me to the Rickenbacker. This one is a mid-2000s 360 in Fireglow. The guitar really looks new. But it's 3 hours away from me, and I have no way to try one before I invest a travel day to look at it in person. I've checked every dealer around my area, and no-one has any Ricks that I could try. And I have never even touched a Rickenbacker, so I don't know what to expect. I'm pretty adaptable to various neck shapes, so that doesn't scare me. And I don't have large hands. All I really know about Ricks is that they look and sound really cool. So, my question is: what would I gain/lose by trading my ES-339 for a Rick 360? Would it fit my musical style? Or am I just kidding myself because a Rick isn't a lead guitar? I am a big fan of early CCR, and know that John Fogerty used a 360 back in the day. But I can't think of too many other lead guitar players who have used Ricks. Am I missing somebody that I should be remembering? Maybe I should just keep the 339, and quit thinking about a Rick. Give me your opinion, and try to convince me one way ot the other.
