    4003 Ric 3.JPG I have one of those. Might just be the only lefty one, too. It was a difficult color to deal with, according to John Hall, and they had to cut the limited production even shorter. It's kind of "blah" inside the house - as you can see; but outside, or on stage? Big, big difference...:thumbsup:

    You can get these for a bargain and they're much better than people think.

    Yes they are.

    I also have a P/J Hillsboro passive with an ABM bridge that is just awesome to play.

    I’m hoping this will play similar as it also has the beefy ABM bridge.

    Some other Hillsboro models don’t have the ABM bridge and I’m wondering how they play.

    Supposedly the USA Hillsboro is awesome.

    The necks on these are just so easy for me too. Satin and thin.
