    My 1980 Ric arrived yesterday. It's very yellowed from age etc. I want to know what the original color was, eggnog or white? any resources that tell what colored rics were made during certain years?

    I dropped it off at my guitar shop to get it cleaned, set up and rewired.

    can't wait to get it back and get it going.

    I'm the stupidest bass player ever. I always thought rics were heavy.
