    Hi All! I played bass for about 5 years and then put it down for about 15. I've decided to start playing again, but it's amazing how bad I am. Luckily all those basses I hung onto are maybe worth something (1972 Rickenbacker & 1993 Surfcaster). I've already been lucking in the forums and have found this place incredibly useful. I just look forward to learning from everyone here.
  2. Welcome.

    I put my bass down for about 15 as well but didn't keep it. I had a late 80s Rick 4003 that I bought new.

    I finally got back into it and now have 2 Ricks. An early 80s 4003 and an 86 4003S/5.

    You should drop into the Rickenbacker Club and show some pics.

    Welcome back! We don't hold grudges here. You can come and go as you please. Just do me a favor. Next time you take a 15 year break, leave your basses with me! I'll take good care of them for you. Cheers.

    Thanks very much. I pulled the string off my Ric to have some work done - will get photos up later.

    You know, I moved many, many times but I always kept my bass guitars. Glad it finally paid off and i'm getting some use out of them.
