    I played a ric (midnight blue) for the first time the other day.
    I want one, so much.

    Don't think I can justify it though. A shame.

    Photos never do the color justice....it looks wet and very deep in person.




  4. Why does this one have dot inlays?

    I can honestly say in 20+ years of playing bass, I have never even touched a RIC.:rollno:

    Never actually seen one in person except maybe at a Rush or Yes concert.:bag:

    I guess there aren't many distributed in Canada.

    I hear it is a love or hate thing with these basses but I have always wanted one.
  6. That midnight blue 4001 is awesome

    but I'll be damned if mine aint sexier!


    well maybe not.

    We'll call it a tie


    Only really posted here to say that I bought my 4003 off of MF. It was at my house in 4 days. Sure beats the hell out of those 6 month waits some people get.

    And as for why it has dots and no binding. Its a 4001C64, or some number along those lines (I couldnt make the ric sight pull up double check). Its a reissue of pretty much the bass that McCartney played. Watch any beatles vid with him using his ric. No binding, no sharkstooth inlays

    It's actually a 4001V63. Towards the end of the run they were (apparently) made in any available Ric color. Not many people knew this so colors aside from the standard V63 colors (FireGlo and MapleGlo) are pretty rare and there are probably only a few MID V63's. It was a wonderful bass but I find the 4004 models better suit my needs so I sold it.

    C64's have the reverse headstock BTW.

    Midnight blue are the only ones I can find anywhere. I want a damn fireglo or mapleglo. I guess it's good though, because I really don;t need one.
