Long before Rock Band got a hold of the Rickenbacker 325 for The Beatles: Rock Band, the Rickenbacker Guitar was a legend in the rock world.  It was the first American-made guitar to ever grace the hands of John Lennon, and the instrument of choice for many artists in rock and roll’s golden age.  Its three double-coiled humbucker pickups provided a pristine signal and a signature sound that is clearly recognizable in the recordings of the past.  While the Rock Band version may not pack those triplet humbuckers, it does provide a faithful reproduction of the legendary Rick from headstock to wammy bar.  Our friends over at NotCot have a full unboxing and review, including the interesting history of Rickenbacker and how it made it to The Beatles: Rock Band.
