Présentation de l'éditeur

(Book). When the Byrds recorded their hit version of Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man," they popularized a new sound in pop music: the electric 12-string guitar. Rickenbacker is the guitar maker that brought the electric 12-string to market and has since been almost single-handedly responsible for establishing what such a guitar should do. The California company gave one of its earliest 12-strings to George Harrison of the Beatles on the group's first tour of the United States in 1964. He immediately used it live and in the studio and showed off the sound of electric jangle to the rest of the world. This book tells the story of those heady days in the '60s, of the competitors who tried and failed to match the sound, and of the instrument's continuing production by Rickenbacker and use by many modern guitarists. Complete with high-quality photos and exclusive interviews with many of the 12-string's leading players, this is the best guide yet to the history of the sound of jingle-jangle.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another winner by Tony Bacon! 29 mars 2010

Tony Bacon has written another masterpiece! The Rickenbacker Electric 12-String book is comprehensive, well researched, and has some great history and photos of these marvelous guitars. Tony also covers ground on the history of the company, as well as comparisons of other electric 12-strings that Ricky competed with and/or were copycat players after Rickenbacker's success. Anyone who is a fan of vintage electric guitars, and especially those who loved following famous players who made the Rickenbacker such a fabulous part of rock history, should definitely have this book in their library!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Just Rics 22 août 2010
Par Dave From Ohio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Tony Bacon adds to his long list of excellent guitar books with the Rickenbacker Electric 12 String. As always, great narrative along with great photographs. HOWEVER, the title is a bit misleading. Not only does this book present a wonderful history of Rickenbacker 12 string electrics, it also does an admirable job of looking at 12 strings from many other manufacturers as well. This book obviously starts around the time of George Harrison getting his Ric 12, but it also looks at many modern players who have also put this instrument to fine use on their songs. An excellent book about not just Rickenbacker 12 strings, but 12 string electrics in general !

Tony Bacon has done it again !

He's written more concise guitar books than anyone, and now he presents this wonderful history of the world's most celebrated electric 12-string guitar.

Including the pre-Rickenbacker history of 12 string guitars, through the initial forays by Rickenbacker into the electric 12 string market, through the pioneers such as Suzi Arden (she had the first Rick 12), through George Harrison, Roger McGuinn, Carl Wilson, Pete Townshend and so many others looking for the "jingle-jangle chime", not to mention tons of photographic and reference material make this the ultimate guide to the electric 12 guitar.

5 stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tony Bacon History of Rickenbacker 12 strings guitars 30 avril 2011
Par Big D - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have just completed reading the book. I bought the book because I purchased a Rickenbacker 360 12 string guitar, and I wanted to get a better understanding of the instrument.The book is concise and easy to read. I did not like the opening because it gave a history of the Rickenbacker company which I did not find too interesting. When the book hits the period 1960's things really picked up and I couldn't set the book down. Bacon gives a lot of Great information on the groups and individuals that used the Rickenbacker 12 string. You will learn facts that influenced the sound bands got from the Rick 12 string. For example, I did not know Roger McGuinn had his electronics altered and a Vox treble booster built into his 12 string. I also did not know that Carl Wilson did not like his Rick 12 string because of tuning problems and preferred to play a Gibson or Epiphone 12 string. The information on George Harrison's rig was not new to me because I have the book Beatles Gear which covers all the Beatles instruments. Also, there is good information on other 12 string guitars and their role in the music of the 1960's.
A huge bonus is the information on serial numbers, body styles, pickups, etc. If you are a Rickenbacker owner or want to buy a Rick this book is a must reading. I am very pleased with the contents, and it is a very useful reference source. Highly Recommended!
