Checked the mail yesterday afternoon to find GCs latest sales flyer when, I see that the Rickenbacker 4003 is now in stock. Now GC has carried Rick in the past but I distinctly remember Rickenbacker, on their website, announcing their decision not to be carried by GC because of their methods of mass merchandising. They did however continue with Musicians Friend. Now Rick has been well known for their slowness in filling orders to dealers, so I imagine they were dropped by GC for their inability to supply enough inventory for their stores. Now, what has changed? Has Rickenbacker increased production? Appreciate your comments.
