i heard that the rickenbacker guy uses this forum, owner of the company or something, i ordered a bass after the 10th of january this year, it should be comming april sometime (cant wait!) i have just been having a look at rickenbackers site and they say that all basses made in 2006 will have the new vintage tone selector, will my bass have this new feature? im hopeing it will, or is there a chance i would get a bass made before this feature was added? i orderd my bass from www.gak.co.uk. what do you think? anyone got any thoughts?
