Description: Without doubt, the singular most successful electric twelve string design in guitardom. When Mr. Hall had the remarkably fortuitous foresight to bring the second one ever made, a prototype, east and give it to a bed ridden George Harrison in 1964, he could not have known the impact it would have on his modest southern California guitar company or pop music in general for that matter. George would soon be seen playing that instrument in “A Hard Day’s Night” by a young Roger McGuinn who would immediately purchase one, create that jangly thang he and the Byrds would be known for, and subsequently help move quite a few of these girls. This particular example is extremely clean showing very little play wear. She has a bound maple neck with a Rosewood fret board and triangle fret markers. She has a chambered maple body with “Hi-Gain” pick-ups, stereo and mono wiring and an “R” Tailpiece. 360/12s use the opposite string pattern then others have used with the higher gauge string first in the pair. This is an important aspect of the sound when you try to play that chord. Which is evidently just Fadd9. George said so. She will ship in her Ricky branded OHSC. Jangle on.
