    I found a strange Rickenbacker. As far as I know it´s called 2030 "hamburg" and looks like the one pictured except the one I found is black and has crome hardwear. Do you have any info on this bass. Has anyone played or heard it. The bass is a quite a long trip away and I would like your pros and cons about it first.

    This bass was part of a (thankfully) brief period when Rickenbacker was churning out product geared to the low-end market. I'm a hardcore Ric lover, but I've never seen one of these 2030s in person. You are cautioned to be wary and have a clear idea of what would be a reasonable price for one of these. If you don't have high expectations of this bass, and the seller's asking price is reasonable, then it might be okay. But be sure to try before you buy.
