    fast help is GREATLY appreciated
  2. www.ricpage.com is where i get all my Ric brand strings...plus all my Rics and Ric goodies.

    Also, if you have a Ric dealer anywhere near you, they can order them for you.

    i think ill order off the first site... does anyone know what kind of strings the ric usually comes standard with? not the out-of-stock $35 ones, hopefully...

    one more question... what are some common strings i could buy at guitar center that are similar to the rics? i need that A string before thursday, so i guess ill have to buy some extras.

    i appreciate the help, guys.
  7. Alot of Ric players also like Pyramid strings....i think its possible to get these more easily at a local music store.

    I believe it is Rics own brand of strings that Ric installs...they are found on any of the links i gave above.

    Don't know too many Ric players who actually like Pyramids, not to mention Ric themselves refuse to acknowledge a company who falsely advertises.

    I recommend Rotosound roundwounds... A lot of famous ric players have used em. Obviously your ideal choice of string is dependant on you the player, but being as you've not got much time I'd go with what players like Geddy go with. But that's just me.
