I'll post just one pic. Because, really, anyone can find out what these things look like. The pic I'll post is special though, because it's what my eyes beheld the moment I opened the brand new case containing the brand new Rickenbacker 4003. (Nice case, by the way. The latches and aluminum valance, comfortable handle, very nicely padded and lined.) I really only wanted a FireGlo originally because it's soooo R&R. But, the JetGlo looks as sharp as a custom-cut Tux. It'll sit in as nicely in a jazz trio as with electric Blues. Steve Priest didn't seem embarrassed by his, and he was doing Glam! True to my word, I swapped the stock roundwound strings for Labella DTB 760FL and the stock philips head intonation screws for Allen/hex head ones. All this before playing a single note! It's an incredible instrument. No bass has ever felt as comfortable, as "right" in my hands as this one. The neck is exactly the right width from the nut to the body, the scale is just right, the contour and balance are perfect for me. The tone is indescribably killer. I would hate this with rounds! But with flats, especially when they mellow out is without comparison. I brought it to rehearsal, and my front man (with 50 years experience) said it's the punchiest bass he's ever heard. One thing I really appreciate is how the tone stays balanced from E string to G. It's the same tone throughout, just the pitch changes, as it should be. I have one major, serious complaint, but I'll save that for another post. I think I have a solution for it. Just get the Ric!
