    FedEx, UPS and Craigslist somehow mysteriously aligned and delivered some new toys last week. First up a Ruby Rickenbacker 4003. Love the wood on the fingerboard and the Ruby red is superb. I have 3 other Ricks and just had to have a Ruby.

    Next up is a white 2005 Gibson Thunderbird IV. Found it via Craigslist when I was browsing. Really good condition and plays good.

    Last, but not least, is an Electric blue Charvel 2B. I have 3 other 2B's and they really play and sound good when setup. I got a real good deal on it from Guitar Center's online Used Gear section. This is what my wife "got me" for my birthday ;)

    I had the identical Charvel. It was a nice player for sure!
     
  5. Sick!

    And even though I already have my Ric and T-Bird needs covered, I am STILL SOOOO FRIGGIN' JEALOUS.

    I just love NBD.

    I've never played a Charvel Surfcaster. The only Charvel basses that I've ever played are my 4 2Bs.
