    They are getting more stock including Red Rick copies and all black Rick copies. If only I had some money, I'd love to get the all black one.

    Are Retrovibes any good? I hear the name a lot, but never really see any reviews.
     
  6. White one on it's way to me when they arrive.

    Let me know if you review it at all, i'm interested in hearing about it
     
  8. Yeah, I tried to get him to ship me one, but no luck. And when I say "no luck", I mean no response whatsoever.
     
  9. I will pop a review on here when I get it.
    The set neck jazz he does had an excellent review on Basschat UK.
    I'm mainly getting it as I think it's going to be more photogenic than my 3TSB Precision and we've got some video shoots and photo sessions coming up.
    I'm a tart I know.
     
  10. I wonder if they will ship to the Great White North?

    They could sound cool but, with "MM-style" humbuckers, Im not sure it will sound like a Ric.

    I don't like the set neck on that jazz bass.

    It looks like they just glued a regular bolt on bass neck onto a regular body....

    Just asking for trouble if you ask me :eek:

    the black ray bass looks cool, the rick not so much.

    I got a response from him about shipping to the US and this is what he said "The cost of shipping to the US would be around £80 but I also don't particularly want to have any issues with RIC. I produce these basses in very small quantities and so far demand has outstripped supply in the UK as it is." So it looks like at least in the short term, no shipping to the US.
