I've been dying to get a ric, obviously that's a big chunk of change. I've been thinking about selling my jazz bass to get a bit closer to the goal but it has some sentimental value to me. I put the custom shop 60's pups in it too. However, if I got the ric I probably wouldn't use it nearly as much. I purchased a fake rick and liked it a lot but I really want the real thing. I play that more than my jazz. Any advice? I have tried out a couple rics and DO enjoy playing them EDIT: I'm gonna save the jazz bass!!
