RICKENBACKER 660/12

The Rickenbacker 660/12 is the 12 string version of the Rickenbacker 660. It has a solid maple body based on the classic Rickenbacker cresting wave design and a through body maple neck. The origins of the 660/12 began in 1991 as a limited edition model the Rickenbacker 660/12TP designed with input from Tom Petty and which bore his signature from 1991 to around 1998/1999. Tom Petty specified a wider neck than Rickenbacker usually used on their 12 strings, and the 660/12TP had a 1.75 inch wide nut.
