Alright Guys now this is a tricky one, I have the option of buying a Greco Rickenbacker Bass in very very good condition with a brand new ric bridge (I think this model is about a late 70's model from doing my research) for $599 AUD. I have always wanted to own a Ric and every chance I get I torture my self because I know I cant afford a real one but this looks like a good buy from what others have said about these basses... Here is the catch In about a month I will be going to Europe! If I don't buy the bass here I could probably pick up a good bass over there for cheaper then I could in Australia. Should I buy the Bass I have always been after in Australia or Go to Europe with the dreams of buying a bass on the cheap? While on the topic If I did buy a bass in Europe what rubbish would I have to go through to get it home SAFELY? There is my Story now lay some truth on me TB!
