I know these basses are few and far between right now but I have found a few and wanted to share their locations. Sam Ash stores in Hollywood CA and Brooklyn NY have one in stock. I just bought one out of a FL store and am having it shipped to my home in NC. I have put in some time in finding them and I don't need three (or do I) so hopefully if anyone else is wants one as bad as I did here is a chance. They will send you pics of them upon request. I have pics from all 3 I found. Most retailers have told me that Rickenbacker isn't gearing up production on these until October and in Rick form it could be months into a year before the ones already on order are fulfilled. Hope these two find good homes!
