    Today i went to guitar center, to visit a friend that works there. Anyway, he asked me what gear i want to get next, an i told him a rick. He told me that i can probably get a cheap beat rick from a place called mikes music in cincinatti ( i assume this is their website? http://www.mikesmusicohio.com/) and then from there i can buy hardware, pickups,ect and restore it). Well, looking at the inventory of mikes music, it doesnt seem like they have any cheap beat up ones. And looking at the pickups on POTR, it seems like they only sell neck pickups . So in conclusion, where is the cheapest place to buy Ricks? I cant buy from ebay or classifieds, i need a reputable store, and i dont mind buying used.

    Oh, and buying from a retail store or business, will almost always cost more than dealing with an individual.
     
  4. www.ricpage.com is fairly priced. They get used stuff in from time to time and sell a wide variety of parts. They also have excellent service. I bought 4 Rics from him and a bunch of other things. PLeasure to deal with.
