    Jumped at the opportunity to grab this mint Ricky 4003 at a good price, absolutely mint. even still has the stickers on it. Not sure about the pup cover, it might have to come off, but she play and sounds just like a Rick should.

    Nice collection! The P-bass is my fave, but I dig 'em all. :)

    youve definitely got a great stable there!!!

    mapleglo is a sweet finish on those basses. i like how you get to see the grains on the neck especially.

    if you ditch the cover, check out ebay for the "4003 bridge pick-up bezel". i put one in mine almost immediately and havent regretted it. The one i got even had a little thumb rest!

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    The pickup covers always come off my Rics.

    Nice collection, not to mention the LP's as well. But I can't help but notice the Killer Hi Fi setup! You have great taste (Bad Gas for that 68 Jazz!!) Ya, the covers kinda suck.

    Thanks for the heads up on the pickup bezel, jbd5015, I will definitely order one - I was a little concerned about the looks when I remove the cover.
