    experimental model? Experiment most definitely successful!!!:eek:
    I love that birdseye! It would look killer all black too, with that checker binding setting it off.

    "No payments for 3 months - eBay MasterCard Apply Now" HMMM?
    Nope. NO. Must resist.

    Yeah, the birdseye and checkerboard are what really "make" that one.
  6. Woah. Has the pre 74 pup pos'n too.
  7. Awesome!!! I'll never understand what's so "magic" about Ric basses...but they truly are "magic"...

    ...and the model above is a standout among a very special breed...

    ...bidding now @ 2600+, with 3 + days to go. Too rich for my blood, but.........

    here's my favorite model. i purchased this one about three years ago. i like the fact that it doesn't have the body or neck binding which, for me, makes a rick alot more comfortable.

    That is gorgeous! I also prefer Ricks with no binding and dot markers. That's why I love my 4000 so much!

    I am no in line for a 4001c64, for obvious reasons.

    the binding and inlays are key for me with a Ric!

    Here is my 1987 Mapleglo w/black trim 4003. It was stolen from me... and I plan to some day own one in the same color scheme.
