After being outbid on my Geddy Lee Sig auction today, I just decided I'd rather save for a little longer and get a bass of awesome quality. I'm thinking Rickenbacker is my choice. i just have a few questions for Ric owners: How is the string spacing? It looks a bit tight, however that may suit me better than the ulta wide spacings on a few of the basses I've bought (and then promptly sold) recently. How much is a good price for a decent used Ric? I'm looking at the current Ebay auctions, most of them seem to be going for around $900. I guess that's within my budget if a save for a couple more months. Any Seattle area TBers know if the Tacoma Guitar Center or Ted Brown Music has Rickenbackers that I can play? I've never played one, but I love the tone on some of my favorite records. And of course, show your Rics if you've got 'em!
