Whats John playing if Paul's wearing his Rickenbacker 325? Another 325, but a 325-12!!! When the Beatles met up with Rickenbacker in New York just before the Ed Sullivan show, they had a 12 string that they gave to George Harrison. John ordered a 325 version and Brian Epstein an identical version of George's for Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers!!!
