OK, as much as it pains me to do this, I'm putting my JAF on the block. I want...no, I NEED a Ric 4003. Since my trade thread didn't work, I'm going to offer it up for a straight sale. body construction is walnut/mahogany/walnut. bolt-on neck is 5-piece maple and purpleheart with a ziricote fretboard and a walnut headstock laminate. EMG 35dc pickups with the EMG BTC System, 18-volt preamp. controls are volume/pickup blend/stacked treble and bass. tuners are 3 gotoh and 1 hipshot d-tuner. i've also got the original gotoh tuner. mono-rail bridges, dunlop straplocks. the bass is in near mint condition, with no obvious blemishes, dings, or scratches. finish is tung oil with warwick wax over that. includes an SKB Freedom hardshell case. the only trade that i'm interested in is a Ric 4003 in similar condition. i might be swayed on cosmetics, but everything must be 100% functional, and it must include either a hardshell case or high-end gigbag. i would strongly prefer Jetglo, but i might be persuaded into another color...try me. see my next post for pics. high-resolution versions of these pics, as well as more detailed pics if needed, are available through email. shoot me a PM with your address, and i'll send you some pics.
