    Japanese anime fans know how popular the classic Ric bass is to the genre. Here's a Rickenbacker Girl resin figure based on the art of Shunya Yamashita. She has magnetically-attached removable clothing, but you'll have to use your imagination. ^_^

    "Art"? All I see is a pervy hentai action figure. Teenage boy sexual fantasies are not the same thing as art.

    Someone on Flickr has this as a tattoo, but I think they made the Ric blue in the tattoo.

    Oh hell yeah LOL ... the wife already hates me for having a pic of Trish Doan on my desktop, now all I need is this on the shelf in my office :)

    Damn the only one on eBay is the unpainted kit, and I cant paint for crap.

    "Pervy," like art, is in the eye of the beholder, so I guess you qualify. :meh:

    Ha ha can anyone see the irony that the thread above this one is called "How to make a woman happy (Sadowsky porn)" I suggest a rename for this thread. How to make a man happy (porn porn)

    But they are much better when viewed through a soaking wet, white, mens, middle of the road, cotton undergarment.....

    As to the Bass, if the woman was 5 and a half feet tall, that bass must be at least 4 and a half feet long...the uber rick!

    I wonder what the folks at Rickenbaker have to say about it? Is the use of the Bass and name licwensed, or are there no teeth to the legal arm due to Asian manufacture....

    There's this one awesome anime called FLCL where there's this girl that runs around using a Rickenbacker 4003 as a weapon. It's really cool.

    And she's a lefty too!

    As for that statue, I have seen before and would love to have one (it has all the right elements as far as I'm concerned!)

    But $200+ is pretty steep and I suck at painting!

    You can see the pull rope she uses to fire up her Ric:

    My cousin and I thought the same. We came up with a definition:

    Art is anything you do with passion.

    By that definition, masterbation could be considered art. :bag:
