    The Ric is a great Rock & Roll bass. Not made to slap.

    Rics are generally very expensive. We will need a LOT more info such as model number, condition, year. etc. to give any constructive advice.

    Depends if it's a real RickenBACKER, or a fake.

    There's fakes out there... some of which are still desirable and quality.

    Photo's and any details you can give always help get a firm answer.


    If it says Ricken"berger" on it... I'd start questioning it's authenticity.
     

  9. But you can slap a Ric just fine if you want ...

    pipogpop - rather than ask the folks here to tell you everything about Rickenbacker - get info on the model and/or post pictures and we'll tell you about it.

    It's like if I was coming to Denmark, and said "tell me everything about Denmark" - it would take you pages and pages of typing, which would be a drag for you if what I really wanted to know was what coffeehouses in Copenhagen downtown have WiFi.

    See what I mean?

    Post some pics or details.
     
  11. It's be easier if you told us everything about this particular bass. Rickenbacker made several models over the years and those changed over time, not to mention the possibility of a fake, as has been mentioned. Without knowing which one you're talking about, this could get difficult.

    EDIT: the dude above beat me to it.

    Because THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS RICKENBERGER!! Jeez, other people were trying to be subtle. It either says RICKENBACKER, or its fake.

    Dudes a little slow, but here's some Fleabass played on a 4001.






    If you want to know what it is and what it's worth, we need pictures.

    Folks, before you start shouting "troll", or getting overly sarky, please note that the OP is from Denmark, and is probably not a native speaker (or typer) of English.
