I have a 1980 Ric on the way. Can't wait to get it in my hands and get used to playing it. Now I'm unloading one of my MIA Jazzes. Last Saturday I called a local shop that had a 73 Mapleglo with the checkerboard binding for $1200. I called when they opened at 10AM and got there at 1PM as I had some things to take care of before I left. I got there and they had sold it literally 5 minutes before I walked in. He brought it out and showed it to me and it was gorgeous. I was literally almost in tears! I got the '80 for $900, so I am pretty happy.
