Thought I had seen that bass before.......
here it is new......
A Ritter for 2 grand! Someone on TB snatch this up!!!
I'm not normally a higher end bass lover... but Ritter basses kill me everytime. They're beautiful. Wonder if I could trade one of my kids for one!?!?!?
Looks like the guy screwed around with the string spacing. And he says the plastic nut I doubt Ritter uses plastic. But the bass looks awesome in Brian's original factory pics from LowEnd.
Looks like this one will be a deal, especially if brian can confirm the original sale price
Everybody say ooooooooooh Hell I'd buy it if I had 2K
That's not one I'd snag personally.
Looks nice but the pickups are bartolini and the eq is an unknown 2 band (maybe bart as well). the pickups are a big part of the Ritter sound IMO.
Sm Perry, do you think that may be an early Ritter, one he made before he really hit his stride? If so, it might have nice collector value.
I'd be a bit curious about the provenance of this bass. Perhaps it is one of Jens' very early basses (I wonder what the serial # is ... it says R4P700 ... but Ritters for the past 10 years at least have had only 3-digit numbers). I've never heard of a Ritter without the Ritter electronics (3 band with mid-sweep) or without bone nuts. The bridge looks like it's been replaced as well ... E and A strings appear pushed outwards. It's the Ritter Classic shape, but Jens normally has smooth finish ... this one has some very pronounced grain, not like his current finishes. Very strange.
someone lend me 2 grand
I would guess that is a pretty early bass from Jens.
A great price for sure.
I basically agree with Westland. I'd guess that it's probably early, especially based on the serial. I have seen a couple with bartolinis before, and I believe it was an option some time ago. The classic shape is the oldest "standard production" shape of Ritters. Brian Barrett probably knows more and can confirm/correct me.
Not that exciting to me, but I'm also not a bartolini fan. I like the look though. If it had triplebuckers in it, I'd join the chorus urging someone to snag it!
I just noticed...only 7 neck bolts!
I say hold out for a newer one.
He said he uses 7-13 bolts - so it's not out of the ordinary
For 2 grands, that's a steal... I wish I could find deals like these
As for the p-ups... I think you could talk Jens into it if you asked kindly enough getting this and the p-ups&electronics is still much cheaper than what they go for
I really like it, looks very minimalist and yet at the same time very sexy...
if I ahd the cash, I might have snapped it up just to say "I own a Ritter!"
...I won't tell you what I got mine for.
The neck bolt isn't right though; look at the way the heel extends past the body. It's not like that anymore because it doesn't look that comfortable.
I'd rather order a plain-jane new one. But have at it folks. Ok, that's the last I'll say.
I would snatch it up aside from the inconsistancies noted by SM and the pups/electronics/woods. That and the fact I'm sending in payment on a different Ritter tommorow
Looks nice, but a bit basic. Good price too! If I were to buy a Ritter it would have to have a tremolo system.....but that's just me.
Anyone know what the neck is made of? It looks very cool.
