rickenbacker 2k5 color of the year: blue-burst

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by 00soul, Jan 20, 2005.

  1. I find that really nice, but I'd have to judge on a 4003 to be certain. I was never a huge fan of blue Rics for some reason. This one looks like a winner.

    I'll second that! I have just decided that a "Blue Burst" would look great sitting beside my Midnight Blue 4003! Sign me up!!
  9. Eh, I dont like a lot of Rickenbacker bursts. They seem really inconsistent, cause some I've seen look like crap and some are great, just like Fenders. Oh well, they're still great instruments. :)

    I think that would look killer on a bass.

    Oh man, I had the feeling it would be a blueburst. Hmm yes, this would go great with my Midnight Blue 4003 as well :D

    Man I'm Gassing for a 4003 and that blue burst is making it harder to control myself.
  13. I bet that would look badazz on a 4003.
  14. I have one of these (the Blue Boy) and it's quite nice... I'm sure the burst will look great on a 4003.

    Sweet! Somewhat familiar blueburst...

  17. Hopefully someone takes pics of the Ric booth this weekend so we can possibly see this colour on a 4003.

    That is the exact reason that I don't want one. The shade of blue is too similiar to the Midnight Blue IMO. I was really hoping for a GreenBurst of some type.....oh well, there is always the '06 color to look forward to.

    BTW....I do like the BlueBurst.....just not in addition to my MidnightBlue 4003 :smug:

    My Midnight Blue has the (now-discontinued) black trim option, so a chromed blueburst 4003 would contrast with mine a little more. I wonder if I dare order a fretless (wonder what the wait on that would be...)
