    Hey guys-New poster on the for sale forum-I usually do the 'Bay but I'm hoping for a sweet trade to save me from buying outright

    Selling/Trading my trusty Rick-I'm getting rid of all of my Orange gear and switching to Electric Amp-Blacks from here on out so I'm moving on from the bass as well for good measure...I've taken this thing on tour a few times, recorded our latest album using it, played plenty of shows and it sounds great. But its time for a change, I never was a huge fan of black Darth Vader look!

    CIMG5706.

    Thats the most recent pic i've got-I took it using my phone, If I get some legit interest I'll borrow a decent camera and upload some pics asap.

    Its got a bit of wear, bucklerash, worn down on the bottom of the neck next to the binding, but nothing serious. It sounds: Epic.

    I've got nothing but lots of great feedback on Ebay so feel free to PM me or email me about this. Once again, I'm more interested in trades! Rather dot Be dot Alive at Gmail dot com

    Comes with the case $1650 shipped and insured

    Trades: shoot me any interesting ideas for other 4 strings-I'd ideally like to trade for a Burgandyglo Rick, A washburn Scavenger/wing series, Guild, Maton, Gibson, Iceman, Jaco Re-issue, Old-P with Bartolinis, Aluminum necks, would be nice to see a Wal too ;) Okay Okay!

    For sure! I've got two blackamps on the way, I've already got a 215/410 cab and a 612 cab as well they are f&#king epic.

    My Orange amp is actually with the guys at Electric, they re-fabbed it from scratch and put all Electric amp guts inside, new transformer, p2p wiring, new tubes, new turrets-the Orange ate the dust early because of the horrible PC board and tiny transistors. It couldn't run in the red on tour at all and ended up being a huge waste of money. So I sent it to the Electric guys and they made it epic!

    I'll let you know how my Blackamps sound when they are done!

    Thanks!

    I recorded our album 'tales' on it-http://smallstone.com/album75.html

    I used another Orange AD200 mk3-no effects just a pre-amp overdrive pedal. This thing cut through really well-I've got it in Dstandard using 110s just epic.

    It's a 2001 and the case is the sweet blue lined original Rick case.

    Thanks!
