    Oh man whata beauty. Well here's the story. I ordered mine off of http://ricpage.com and mike was a very good person to deal with. He emailed me a bunch about all the questions i had for him. Anyways, i ordered a fireglo but he sent an email the day he sent it saying it was jetglo! So i had to send it back and wait another 4 days for my fireglo! lol Well the wait is over! and it's rockin'!

    Anyways, yeah it sounds kickass on my poopy B15 Hartke lol. But i'm sure it'll rip some windows out once i get a new amp.

    hm so im thinking of getting her a mesa amp and DR lo-rider strings.

    hows that? and should i get thicker strings or stick with the smaller ones that came with the rick? i've got some thick hibeams on my fender jazz and i love em, but i wish they had a little more thump- so i was thinking of lo riders

    Very nice. I'm a Jetglo guy myself, but that's a sweet bass.

    Just let me get this straight, the 06's have the walnut wings, slightly thinner neck and the push/pull for vintage tone, correct?

    the vintage/normal tone setting is really cool. they both sound pretty good, but i like the standard best because it has more punch. but if you wanna play something softer, the vintage tone would work best i think.

    Wow.... looks cool :)

    So... how's the neck? Is it more similiar to jazz basses neck or...?

    i actually think the neck is the same size or smaller than my jazz! i can really fly on this Rick. It's MUCH lighter and balanced better than the jazz too.

    Very nice! :cool: I just recently found out about the new thinner necks, which gave me instant GAS for a 4003! :hyper: But... I have to wait 'til I recover from the upcoming holiday spending. :meh: :bassist:
     
  17. Very nice, I used to have one just like it ^_^

    so what's up with the metal thing thing covering the pup?

    I've never been a fan of ricks (to be fair, I've never played one), but that's nice looking
