    I’ve had a 2013 Rickenbacker 4003 for several years. It’s been gigged but needed a little TLC to live it’s best life. With help from a good luthier (2nd one), I’m finally very happy with it.
    - good setup (stock nut slots are way high)
    - Chromes flats (great match)
    - Hipshot bridge!!! (3oz lighter)
    - cove treble bezel

    Bonus/experiment
    - Zero-mod thumbrest en route

    They're glorious when you get them dialed in to your liking. Love that color.

    I don’t want to put it down now. And thanks, I love Ruby Red too. My favorite Ric color.

    Nice! My 4001V63 sounded great with Chromes (40-55-75-95) on it.

    This is from a radio date Rare Blend did at WRUW (91.1 FM) at the Case Western Reserve University campus on 08/30/2007. I was using my, at the time, Voodoo Lab Tremolo pedal. Played figerstyle. The Audio is not that great, coming off the radio console.
