    Awesome man, I've been GASing for a Ric for a long time, I don't think I'll be able to pull the trigger anytime soon though.

    Really cool bass! I had a Ric copy back in the 80's. I always wanted to get the real deal. Some day.

  14. I'm really regretting selling the 78' I had. I just wasn't playing it...

    I've gotta get a RIC again, I just have no money for it.

    No it doesn't , I'm not really bothered by it at the moment, I didn't even know it was "offered as standard" until after I bought it.
    When or if Ric ever offers it in their boutique I probably will do it.
