Rickenbacker 325C64 Miami C Series: The Rick That Led the British Invasion Replicated

Posted on .

In case you’re wondering what Miami has to do with this fabulous rock history artifact, a little Fab Four history is in order. In February 1964, The Beatles were hanging in Miami, enjoying the weather and getting ready for their second live appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The guitar on which this week’s instrument is based was shipped direct to John Lennon from the Rickenbacker factory in California. Lennon promptly retired his road-worn ‘58 Rick and the following day was seen rehearsing with the new axe on the Sullivan set, which he later played live on the show. The new Rick had become his main stage and recording electric guitar.

Anyone who has experienced a truly revelatory emotional moment thanks to a song (or even just had an “ear worm” of a tune stuck in their head for days), knows that songs can be quite powerful. Once you make your vision a reality, how do you get it heard, and what do you if and when people deem it offensive?

By Brad Porter

Musician’s Friend reached out to one of our best friends in the music education community, world-renowned drum instructor Mike Johnston. Mike’s website, MikesLessons.com, is leading the way in online drum education content, with Mike’s positive, upbeat personality at its core. His passion for learning the drums, knack for teaching others, and willingness to stay up late teaching himself audio/video techniques after his wife had fallen asleep, have helped him create a unique atmosphere where players of all levels can come together and, as Mike says, “Embrace the Suck,” or rather, celebrate the process of learning the art and craft of drumming.
