Greetings All: I am looking for help here with regards to Rickenbackers bass guitars. I am a Fender player, but am looking to expand my arsenal and have been looking at the Rics...but I know nothing about them... So, could some of you Ric players pass along some advice with what I should be looking for when buying a bass. I know the obvious, but are some models better than others? Did they have a bad production year...etc etc... What are the differences between Fender and Ric's (besides the obvious body) I am currently using a Geddy Lee sig series bass...so what would be different with parts. ie necks, weight, balance, sound, tone, ease of control use etc etc etc...4003 better than 4004 etc ???? So all you Ric bass players, time to brag about your bass and convince me too go buy one.
