The Tom Petty Limited Edition, Model 660/12TP, is entirely hand made in America from solid "charactered" Eastern Rock Maple with a fully inlaid 21 fret rosewood fingerboard. Using neck through body construction, this 12-string instrument features "checked" binding, vintage pickups, vintage knobs, gold pickguard and nameplate, vintage keys designed to Rickenbacker specifications, trapeze tailpiece and a 12 saddle bridge. The neck on the 660/12TP was designed to Petty's demanding standards. A Rickenbacker vintage case is included with each instrument. The instrument was available in Fireglo and Jetglo.
The company previewed the instrument at the 1988 Summer NAMM show in Atlanta.
The model was formally introduced at the 1991 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim. The Company manufactured only 1000 of these instruments. Each guitar is accompanied by an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity and Origin.
**Guitar is used but in good condition for its age. Paint has swirls (typical of black painted guitars) but no scratches. The front lower corner of the body has some finish dulling from playwear where arm usually rests (see picture).
