    So, this is a factory second?

    Yes, but I haven't found anything different about it.

    Good day Sir! I have been searching for this model and colour for the last year, just missed out on one on eBay. Is it still available? Would cost a ton to post I think, I live in Scotland!

    Sunburst Rippers are SUPER rare. This is one of the later models with the slightly smaller (Grabber size) body and a well-defined two-tone burst. There were about 11 made with the "soft" sunburst, those are even harder to find. The "Second" stamp means this one was indeed a factory second, most likely for cosmetic issues. It wasn't quite perfect enough to be a "new" bass when it was sold, but it's WAY cleaner than most of the Rippers I've seen in the last 20 years. Great TB'er here, if I didn't have a Ripper already I'd be buying this one.

    Wow! I've seen this add many times but I just now noticed the pickups look like eb0 mudbuckers and the pickguard looks like a ric! The bridge pickup isn't in the pickguard... A prototype perhaps?

    This bass sold a bit ago. I've been out of the country for 6 weeks and still am. Sorry.
