Hi all, I've always wanted a Ric, but it never happened. Got the idea of searching for a body on Ebay, thinking I could do a restoration project like I did with my RD a while back. I found one, reasonably priced I thought, so I quickly bid on it. Then I looked at the seller's other items. They had all the parts for sale, except the jack plate, which someone probably already purchased. I realized this wasn't really a restoration project, it was a perfectly fine bass that they had gutted to make a profit. Couldn't back out of the bid, and now I have the body. Looks like maybe it is a B-stock, due to some finish issues on the backside. It has a couple of dings as well, but nothing major. Other than that it looks perfect. My original plan was to refinish it satin white with black and checkerboard bindings (it's jetglo with white bindings), with black hardware. Now I'm not so sure. It wouldn't take much to get it in playing condition, just get the hardware and assemble it. So what do you guys think? What should I do with it? What would *you* do with it? Looking for ideas here.
