    This Ric is in excellent shape. Upgraded with a Bone Nut, Toaster Neck Pickup and a Pickgaurdian Bridge Cover. The bridge's foam damper was removed as well. The pickup cavities are copper shielded and grounded to the bridge. Case is also excellent. It was Pleck'd and setup beautifully by the Music Gallery of Highland Park

    I have all the original parts except for the neck pickup. 8 pounds 8.1 ounces

    PRICE DROP $1450 shipped and insured CONUS! I will take PayPal for CONUS transactions only. International buyers can pay by USPS Money order or Bank Transfer and will be responsible for all shipping, insurance, duties and VAT

    Thanks. Many more pics including the shielding work available. It's quieter than most Rics. Less buzz around fluorescent light ballast.

    This may look like a generic Ric.

    It ain't.

    The toaster, setup and shielding make it a cut above the rest.

    Nice, the Toaster is a great upgrade, and has a warmth and deepness that's hard to find anywhere else. Good luck bump.

    Looks like a nice job. Do you feel the toaster pickup made a significant difference to the tone of this bass?

    Not a dramatic difference but I'd say a bit stronger around 150 to 250 HZ. It's strung with DR Sunbeams and pulls off a real ballsy Chris Squire and Dave Meros growl without being zingy.

    If you've ever heard Squire's tone on Mind Drive on Yes's Keystudio album, this Ric nails it.

    Sweet bass, a new one won't have this setup and extras and likely won't sound as good. I think these inlays are nicer than the new ones too. Thankful to have the ability to consider this or new though... Free bump, well not exactly free because I have been flooding the seller with PM questions... :)
