    It looks like a modded 4 to 5, but a Rick nonetheless. Ric5 could verify for sure.

    I don't remember the one I owned briefly in the early 2000s as having the ric-o-sound. Could be wrong though....the one I owned I purchased new from MF.

    That would be some tight string spacing for sure if it is a 4 string neck. Custom job perhaps?

    That's actually how they are....why they really didn't catch on. VERY tight spacing.....I think Rick just built a 5er around a 4 neck. It was fingerstyle unplayable for me.

    This one looks legit but I don't remember mine having the ric-o-sound on it.

    I grow organic carrots and they are not for sale
    On another thread we determined that it was probably 4008 made into a 5 string at the factory.
