    Anyone got any information on these Rick copies? I know Greco and Ibanez are the big ones for Rick knock offs, but anyone hear of Aspen?

    Aspen seems to have been a well regarded Japanese manufacturer of both acoustic and electric guitars.
    They made Jazz, Precision, EB0 copies as well as earlier in-house designs.
    Here's an old TB ad for a Rick copy:
