    I saw this for sale. The author doesn't seem to know anything about it. Will probably go and check it out tomorrow. Anyone have any ideas on what model this could be, or if it's a fake, anything to keep an eye out for when looking at it?

    Never heard of a fake 3000/1. Great basses, IMO.

    Model 3000. Not a fake. Not their most popular bass, but a nice one nevertheless.

    Sweet!!!! What's a good price for them? eBay turns up 0 results for a full guitar. Everything on the intertubes revolves around $1,400. Is this a good base price?

    The one in Towson is/was roughed up and has a crack in the neck, hence the price. (It was discussed in another forum).

    Same here. LOL! It's a very rare Rick that requires trumpet chops to play. It never really caught on.

    It's a 3001, not a 3000 (short scale). They look similar, but the 3000 has a smaller body and does not have the shedua strip through the middle of the neck. It's a real Rick, made from 1975 to '84.

    You need the book!
