I love my Rickenbackers! Gorgeous guitars that are bright as the sun (and jangly as whatever else is jangly). I do see not any love for Rickenbackers here at this site. Rics really are polar opposites of SGs. Rics are bright and cherry little fellows, the SG is the Devil's own. Tone wise Rics can't do what SGs do and SGs can't do what Rics do. Yes, Rickenbackers are the anti-SG. That's why we all need an SG and a Rickenbacker in our collection.
