Some of you may have heard that a batch of MID rics had a problem were the color bled onto the binding of the neck and body. My 05' 4003 was affected by this and about 3-4 months after I bought it, I sent it in to rickenbacker to get it refinished. The refinishing was covered by the warranty but I had to pay for shipping. Now 2 1/2 years later I'm starting to see it again on the neck and my warranty is probably expired. Should I even bother with sending it back or just live with it? Even if they cover the charge, I will be away from my only bass for 3 weeks and will have to pay for shipping again. Anyone else have their ric refinished and was affected by this a second time?
