Here's mine. Late 70's Kasuga (MIJ):
Dammit quad ,just cause you got an amazing fake rick doesnt mean you gotta go make a club and rub it into us none owners
anyone looking to sell their rickenfaker?!?
Not fair, Rat Blitz. You got a real one and a fake. Hand one over.
My fake. An El Degas, sold in Canada, produced in Japan. Many of the same features as Quad's, except for binding and the toaster.
Here's my Greco 4001S copy:
It even came with the original case and candy!
Here's one I sold recently. An Aria:
And here's a Greco I owned a few years back:
I loves me some Rickenfakers!
Yea, sure this isn't the first faker thread...
keep the fakers a comin!
This thread should be renamed John Hall's stomach ulcer cluster****.
Hah, good one! Hey, what's done is done. These were done in the '70s. Shall we hide them away for none to see? Hell no! Show em off folks!
i was gonna post a pic of the Aria i just got but it seems that 69vette,the previous owner already did. the "fire glow" one
Some of these fakes really good.
Not all are 70's.
For example, this beauty, while not as accurate as some(no ricky headstock, or cloverleafs, being the biggest differences, though there are a million more), is a mid 09.
I made the pickguard myself, fwiw.
Hi Dark. Let's see the headstock!
This sux..... This is one club I wish I could join..... Been looking for one for yrs.
My first real bass, bought new in '75 ...
Ibanez 2388B Rickenbacker 4001.
All the guys were playing Fenders - I needed something different
The sound is more Rickenbacker than the pickups would make you believe. Construction and detail down to the checker binding is spot-on
NICE Ibby Dog!!!
Here ya go,
As you can see, its far from the Ricky style, but it dosen't bother me one bit, I just wanted someting that played and sounded great, with the Ricky look in general, which its got.
Oh, the Duncan Ricky pickups came stock on it.
Oh, and here's a pic of it as it came out of the box, day 1, completly stock.
