    I dunno, but with those small pics, you can't see much of anything. I'd be leary of it.
     
  2. it says its got a serial number (7948)? does this make it seem less of a copy?

    Be very cautious if it's shipped from China.

    Somebody here who knows more about Rics than me can probably tell you if that's at least an authentic serial number. Doesn't mean it belongs to that particular bass, but that'd help, I reckon.
     
  5. Here's the Rick serial number info site.

    You can compare and see if it's even a legit serial number. Somehow it doesn't look right with only 4 numbers... :meh:
