    Congrats! Welcome to the brotherhood! ('92 Midnight Blue 4003 here.)

    I play other basses from time to time, and sometimes they take the spotlight away (I can't get enough of my Carvin fretless right now) but my heart invariably always returns to my trusty old Ricky. (I think I need to hunt down a fretless Rickenbacker!)

    hey thanks alot guys. i don't really have anyway to get some recorded clips, but i might have a way. it is used, it was made in 2001. it was $800 and it came with the RIC hardshell case, and the seller paid for 2nd day shipping, so i believe it was a pretty good deal. this thing sounds amazing through my ampeg/hartke rig, but i played it through my friends SM-500/Goliath III setup and it did the Ric no justice. sounded lifeless and souless through the SWR, but its a crazy animal through my rig.

    Peace,
    Scott
     
  19. enjoy the Ric.those things are friggin' awesome.
