While preparing my book over the last eight years or so, I accumulated quite a few Rickenbacker basses. I'm no longer an active player, and I'd like to see the collection distributed to folks who want/need/appreciate a good Rick! The color chosen for RIC's "Color of the Year" program for 2002 was a throwback: Burgundy! I bought this one "used" on eBay from GuitarBoy in July 2007. It is in out-of-the-box mint condition, and one of several Ricks they had from some collector. No terrific wood grain visible, but the finish sure is pretty. Price is firm at $1750 with case (plus shipping). No trades, no lower offers.
