Rickenbacker's are actually backwards relative to most 12 strings - part of their unique sound.

A $3K budget will buy more than a student model. A new GFI or Justice pro steel is is right at $3K. A new Williams SD-10 on the 3/4 body is $3400. At $3K I wouldn't be looking used for an S10.

Rangexpander is all aluminum, just as Jim P said.
If you want to get picky, there are subtle differences in EMCI production, most notably two tack welds added on the changer/neck interface. I've n ...
