    Hey NAMM'ers! Has the new Rickenbacker 5string and/or the 2002 super-special finish been announced yet?

    The news is as follows;

    NEW COLOUR - BurgundyGlo!!!

    NEW MODELS - 4004C-II 5 string and 8 string

    These both should have humbucking pickups and possibly active electronics.

    Pictures should be available soon.
    In the mean time, check out the new RIC poster showing all of their models including the 4004C-II 5 String below.

    Nice!!! The 5 string looks like it might have closer to normal spacing! Oh man, I want to try one...
     
  4. More 4004's. I've heard that the tone from the 4004's is different from the 4001's and 4003's. Is there any truth in this? Because as you know, everyone hates change. ;)

    that's great. i'm a big fan of rickenbacker products and i hope that this new bass can compete with high end modern basses.
