    I was listening to some older McCartney & Wings today.....killer tone from the Rick. Well, I'm assuming it was the Mapleglo Rick he always used back then....

    Does anyone here play their Rick with flats? If so, can you get anywhere near that Silly Love Songs, Let 'Em In type of tone?

    It's almost completely void of any treble what-so-ever, just big and fat with a touch of growl....love it.

    I've played a 4001 with flats, sounded really jazzy, as in the genre, not the bass, but sounded great. Very smooth and round, maybe that was the amp, but that's possible at least.
