    Just got my 2013 Ric 4003 a few minutes ago from the UPS guy. I'm letting everything warm up to room temp then I'll take some pictures. I'm stoked!

    Awesome!

    I am getting tempted to get one. . . I love my 4004 but I'd like to have a flats bass and a rounds bass. . . .

    What finish? Where from?

    I really hope this works out for you.

    For some perverse reason, I've been looking for a deal on a 4003, but all the hassles, QC screwups, disasters and so forth everyone seems to have with new 4003 buys these days has just about quenched my desire to move forward with this. :(

    Please have a success story for me! ;)

    Here are the new pictures with new Chromes installed, stickers removed and thumbrest installed. Mine appears flawless. No finish or nut issues. Maybe 2013 will be a good year for Ric Basses.

    I cant see the pics due to work filter...what color is it....it's killin me I gotsta know!
     
  14. Congrats!

    You know, it's kind of weird....I have played Rics since the 70s and in all that time I have never owned a FG. Always went with the other three....


    Yours is a beauty, though!!


    Here's to wishing you many, many years of great service!!

    Congrats man!

    I am SO PLEASED for you! :)

    Wish mine had arrived in a similar condition, but at least MF made up for all the hassle with a killer price!

    How was the action and overall playability out of the case? Are you going to set this up yourself?
