The Exorcism of the Ox

    While speaking to our good friend, The Ox he committed an act that could only be the result of Satanic possession.

    He had commented that he wished he could have a Rickenbacker neck on a P-bass body. As well all know, Rickenbacker-Fender association is strictly prohibitted by Article 4, Paragraph 18 of the Geneva Convention also known as the Bass Clause.

    What kind of sick monster would think he could just add the pure luxury of a Rickenbacker onto a common workhorse like he P-bass? Clearly he is possessed by something evil and it would be best if we all promptly beat him about the head.

    Furthermore, we should attach a badge to his chest with the letter H emblazoned upon it. H for Heathenism. Then all within the community could see his shame.

    Note: I'm not being a bass-nazi head. In fact, he wanted me to post this. And I've been reading Puritan Literature for English.

    Why not just add a P pickup to a Ric?
  3. If I put a ric pickup in a squire will it sound like a ric? ;)

    Would that make a Ric a two-trick pony?
  6. Steve Azola is pictured in American Basses(Jim Roberts)holding a Ric-necked, Fender(Jazz, IIRC)-bodied 'Fenderbacker'. Do you think he is also posessed? :eek:

    I would want to do it just to drive John Hall even more insane than he is. Rics aren't bad basses (I hate them but I can see why people like them), but John Hall's totalitarian nature over Rics borders on the insane.

    Heheh, I just like the way Ric necks feel, how thin yet chunky they are. P-bass necks rock too, but sometimes I wish mine had a Ric-like neck.
