I’ve had mild GAS for one of these for quite awhile, but it’s escalating to the point where I’m semi-serious about ordering one. I think it’s one of the coolest looking guitars out there, and I owned a 360 many years ago so I have some experience with the Ric feel and vibe. Is the 381 a different beast than the 360? Here are a few other questions: - How noisy are the pickups in general (Toaster & High Gain)? I tend to play loud with a fair bit of drive, and my amp has a bit of a noise floor (Komet Concorde). I’m fine with a Strat but P90s hum a bit much for me. I just can’t remember how the Ric did cranked up. - Also related to noise; is the 381 prone to squealing microphonics at volume? I’m a huge fan of the good kind of controlled feedback, but that high pitched squeal is awful. - Would you get the 6 or the 12? I only play a 12 string once in a blue moon... so I’d probably have the 12 strung as a 6. I’m thinking maybe the option is good though? I play mostly pop and 90’s style alt rock (Smashing Pumpkins, Placebo, Silverchair), and punk/emo like Brand New, Saves the Day, and Jimmy Eat World. Drop D is about as heavy as I go for the most part. 381 pics are of course welcome and encouraged to fuel the GAS further. Thanks!
