Here are some Ric style basses I had made over seas. There are copies/clones, whatever you like to call them, that are mass produced. You can get them on DH Gate, MadeinChina, etc. I bought one of those back in 2013 and they were crap, in my opinion, ("Basswood", 22 fret, headstock tilt too extreme, the body was just about as thick as a Precision Bass, set in neck, etc) I would stay away from buying these. I approached the manufacturer of one of those basses and asked them to do a special build for me. They will do this at a $50.00 markup from their standard clones they make. What I got was quite impressive as far as the bass body "itself", that was all I cared about because I knew I was going to replace all the pickups, electronics, bridge, etc. As long as the basic build is good, you can mod one out for less than $600.00 and yes, that is including the bass itself. The bass will run you around $350.00 shipped to your door. It will look like the Transparent Blue Copy and the Mahogany with Black Binding Copy below. The Mods I did were, Standard Ric Bridge and Neck pickup, Standard Ric Wiring Harness, and Ric Pickguard. The Ric Style Bridges I added were from Allparts, so it will be a little more if you go that route, plus you have to cutout the cavity. The necks on these are Three Piece, Neck through Body. The necks are not as chunky as the real thing, almost between a Precision and Jazz Neck. The nut width is 1 11/16" The overall Scale and Dimensions length/width/depth are exactly as the Standard 4003. The Jack hole is routed for only Mono not stereo. The Fretboard is Rosewood. The ones I have shown are Maple Neck/Maple Body, Maple Neck/Mahogany Body and Swamp Ash Neck/Swamp Ash Body. There is only "One" Truss Rod. The Electronics, Pickups that come with these from the factory are ok, see transparent Blue Copy for what they look like without Mods. They are wired like a Les Paul. The bridge pickup sounds really good, its a fat pole single coil, the neck pickup is bland. If you want to use a Standard Ric Bridge you will have to rout out a cavity for it to fit. The MM style bass bridge that comes with it is 2 1/4" string spacing. The last image was the very first Custom Build Copy I had them make for me, It was Mahogany Body and Neck.
