I've never owned nor played a Rick, but why the hate on the bridge? Just give honest answers.
Thought your thread title was asking me an unspecified question.
I've never personally seen it happen (I also don't own a Rick), but I've heard of many that complain of "bridge lift", which appears to be a fault in the design. The tailpiece is not connected to the body and so the string tension and slight upward angle pull the bridge, which bends at its weakest point.
It is the hardest bridge to adjust
Actually, having never owned a Gibson or epi, how does the 3 point bridge adjustment compare with the Ric?
Is that last picture even of a Ric? The pup looks off.
I had no idea bridge lift was so bad. I am really thinking the Ovation Magnum is a humongous Ric rip off now. I always wondered why it had such a huge bolt holding the bridge from the back, and the bridge looks a lot like a ric bridge.
Ric knows about this problem and has been "designing" a replacement for years. I don't know what is holding them back.
There are aftermarket replacements which solve the issue but they don't look quite like a Ric bridge does.
