Show me your Rickenbackers!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Richenbacher, Jan 21, 2012.


  1. Hi! I'm sixteen and I really love the way Rickenbackers look, especially the 4003 and 4001 models! Anybody got ricks from way back? Unusual colours? And most importantly, any stories to tell? Thanks :)
    Currently looking for a job to get an Azureglo Rickenbacker 4003... Seriously love the tones and that iconic look...

  8. Guess which one is the Ric -

  9. Wow, love the double neck :O
    That's quite the collection :)
     
  10. I see you went for the Azureglo :)
    Btw, is it "Azureglo"? Some places advertise it as midnight blue. I think I'm gonna get Azureglo, but I believe RIC have just released a ruby colour which sounds equally awesome :)

    It's Midnight Blue (MID).
    AzuerGlo (AZ) was discontinued years ago, and was a few shades lighter in colour.

    Thanks!
    Actually, compared to many, it's quite a modest collection.
    It took me 25 years to get this far.
     
  13. Nice performance shot Floyd.
