    Great price, even though that bass is definitely pretty rough looking.

    More like well-played. It's also worn on the "thumb" side of the neck from the 2nd to the 5th frets and on the back side of the upper horn. The strings appeared to be Rotosound nickels that were worn to the point of sounding like flats. It looks like it got some use in a "metal" band of sorts and so I'm sure it wasn't looked after properly. I'll remedy that.

    I put on a set of new D'Addario XLs that I had laying around. I'll get a Pickguardian replacement pickguard and bridge pickup surround since I can't stand that sharp edge on the exposed rear pickup surround. I may add a Hipshot bridge later to make intonation adjustments easier and I like the added midrange they give a Ric.

    Yeah, she's rough-looking, but I love those early 80's neck profiles. Or you can look at it this way-some people pay Fender lots of money to get the look that I have on this bass.
