    Last Friday I took possession of my first Rickenbacker, a 1999 fireglo 4003. This has been a dream bass for many winters and is the final core puzzle piece of my demolition rig.

    Anyway, pics. Here is the new bass with my full rig. Peavey Classic 400 on two Greenboy Duallys loaded with Faitals. At one point I struggled to keep up with a pair of loud guitarists... no longer an issue. My rig doesn't doom, it demolishes.

  5. Very nice! Congratulations are in order so enjoy your new bass! I was eyeballing some of those vintage heads you have in your collection also! Reminds me of my teens in the 70's!

    In a rare display of emotion, I'm feeling a bit sorry for your drummer.

    ... and the telephone jack looks on, wondering, "Why am I here? Where do I fit in?"

    Nice. But don't tease us. Is that an Ampeg stacked on a Sunn? Do the lights dim in your house when crank that puppy up? More pics please.
  15. Thats what caught my eye too! I saw the Ric but my eyes got drawn to the right immediately! It reminds me of my childhood that ampeg head.
