George Beauchamp and Adolph Rickenbacher founded Electro String in 1931 to manufacture what everyone would soon call “Rickenbacker” guitars. Success with musicians came early. Rick steels were the measure of quality and performance; their tone established the standards. On the other hand, the company’s fully electric bass viols and violins excited segments of the industry, but never sold well. Same story for the novel-but-off beat Bakelite standard guitars: few players bought them. While it’s true Rickenbacker 340 set the stage for modern electric guitars, after World War II the company languished as others, like Fender, capitalized on them.
By ’58 Rickenbacker produced both Deluxe and Standard double-cutaway acoustic/electric models.The Deluxe 360 and 370 models had triangle-shaped fingerboard inlays, bound necks, and bound bodies. Moreover, they came with a Rick-O-Sound jack after mid 1960 (hooked up with a special junction box, it divided the signal from the guitar’s different pickups to produce a quasi-stereo effect with two amplifiers.) Standard models, the 330 and 340/Rickenbacker 340 Series, rickenbacker 340 for sale had dot inlays and no bindings.
