    I just ordered this beauty and it should be here late this week or early next week. Figured I'd show the pics that they sent me of it. Brand new Ric 4003 Montezuma Brown OH GOD IT'S SEXY!

    Good choice....congrats! That pic looks like one of Mike Parks' listings and if that is the case good choice on the dealer as well (Rickenbacker Page).

    I almost bought that bass, but the price was too high. That was probably a couple months ago.

    Congrats! The Monty Brown is an awesome color. RIC should make it a standard finish. ;)

    Great choice. I just recently received my fireglow 4003 and it's quite the guitar.

    That Montezuma is nice looking. Maybe even nicer looking than a fireglow.... how could you? :cool:

    Have fun playing.

    I've got a Montezuma Brown 4003 as well. It's SO gorgeous. You won't be disappointed . . .

    So Sweet! Does anybody know if Rics ever come with maple boards?

    Let's start a Monty Brown 4003 club!

    RIC was never really into the maple board thing. Some early 4004 Laredos had maple, but that was about it.
     

  13. What, do you want to have enough treble punch to shatter windows?:D

    True, but EQ'ed properly, I much prefer a good bird's-eye maple fb over any other wood.

    Lukeman970,
    I bought the SAME exact bass from Mike Parks 2 weeks ago. Great guy to deal with. I love the color but I almost went with the Fireglo but the Montezuma Brown looks soooo much better.

    Stupid newbie question: When mine arrived the cover over the bridge pick up is not level and actually slants down lower over the G and D strings. Is this standard with Rics?
    Thanx. Enjoy

  17. nice bass man, hope it plays and sounds as nice as the jetglo i have
    i've always been a sucker for the Montezuma brown color you got.
     
  18. I want one of those, but, as always, I'm broke.......
