From the RIC site:
There go the prices on that eight I wanted someday...damn.
I can't say that too many people will miss the 4003S/5. Hell, even Chris Squire won't play it.
is that a Chris Squire signature hung on the wall in Tampa for months and I didn't get it. Now they're all gone!
Maybe there's something new just around the corner that will be introduced at NAMM next month that we don't know about yet!
I wouldn't be surprised. All thought I wouldn't expect to see a new 8-string though.
That's too bad. I've never played either, but I've heard that the string spacing on the 5 string is SUPER TIGHT!!!!! I'd like to try an 8 string though.
Well, you know what it means when a company discontinues a product...
NEW RICKENBACKER MODEL(S) ON THE WAY!
Nino, maybe we'll even get to see that wide string space 5...
aww, i really wanted to try a rick 5 too!
I love Rics, I've owned three, my V63 is my # 1 bass.
Having said that, the 5 and the 8 are simply not designs they excel at or are known for...especially in their price points. They won't be missed by most. A wise business decision.
The best 5 string basses I have personally played are the Fender Roscoe Beck V and the EB MM Stingray 5. Both simply outstanding.
But the reason I'm attracted to their eight is that it can be set up for fingerstyle, with the octave closest to the floor!
I wanted the 5 because of the super tight string spacing, but it didn't come with binding and because of that...it looked ugly as....well it was ugly.
That sucks. And I have still never seen one of the newer Laredo or Cheyenne models in a music store, or even played by another bassist. I'm quite curious about those new models, but it seems like no ones ever played them.

The Stingrays have pretty tight spacing...it feels like a four!
but the tone...
