Along with the Fenders I am intrigued by the Rickenbacker 4003 Model. This looks like the same one I remember that was used in the 60s. I think that Paul Mcartney used this model with the early Beatles. My questions are 1. Are they worth the high asking price. 2. How is the quality, is it comperable to the early ones. 3. What is the lowest price anyone has found on these in brand new condition and on which site (most want you to e-mail for a quote). 4. Where the heck are these made. Thanks Much.
