Rickenbacker 5

  1. Hey, I dont know what board this goes on, but since I saw a similar post, I figured this is where it goes. A lot of people have been asking(or so it seems to me) about ric 5 strings. Well I was cruising the bass northwest site, and there it was. A ric 5. The link is http://www.bassnw.com/Used Basses/rickenbacker_4003s5_white.htm.

    Saw it in person on Friday. Looked at it and kind of played it on the stand, and the string spacing, while definitely tight, wasn't that big of a deal. The B was actually pretty tight, too! I'd buy it if I wanted the Ric tone on a 5...but I don't think I'll get it.
