Here is my 1990 Rickenbacker 325V59 in Mapleglo. It is really small…so I like it on that level. However, the short scale makes the strings feel really loose and spongy when tuned to standard pitch. I have actually put .012’s on it to try and make up for some of the tension lost becasue of the short scale. It doesn’t really work though. :(
On the plus side, all you have to do is plug this in and you instantly sound like the early Beatles! :D
