But if it looks like a clown and honks its horn like a clown...
That works too.
A thought occurred to me; we could design our own paint job and call it "JokerGlo". It would have to be a weird burst using green and purple.
I'm trying to understand the pronunciation difference between "Getty" and "Geddy". But yeah, you're right, I misspelled his name. Odd, considering I have his big book sitting right in front of me. I am old...
Pronouncing Getty like Geddy is called a glottal stop. It’s a way that pronunciations eased over time. Most people pronounce J. Paul Getty, or the Getty Museum as geddy. And pronounce Marta as marda. If you pronounce the t as a t, it sounds weird.
* I learned that on ‘A Way With Words’ on Wisconsin Public Radio, one of my favorite shows every Sunday morning.
So, it's not quite as dopey sounding as pronouncing Kevin Moore as "Keb Mo."
Anyone here have a Rick guitar? I am GASing for a 350v63.
Wow, that's quite a transition! I'm on the hunt for a 4004 to modify. Holding out for something at the right price. There's going to be some serious routing, a refinish, and a pickguard added, so condition is not critical.
650S. Great instrument.
I think, at long last, we have found the TalkBass exclusive signature edition 4003.
I have a friend that want to sell one … it has been repainted and converted to a 5 … I was going to buy it and make it an 8 string … but I don't have the extra money
Not, presently, I have had a few over the years:
'03 660/12 MG
'98 360V64 FG
'01 730/12L MG
'07 660 75th Anniversary DCM
'67 330 FG
Those two are not the same bass that's been modded. The Ruby is my former 2012 NAMM Show 4004 Laredo that a TBer in Florida now owns; the Jetglo 4004 Laredo SPC was built for me in the Fall of 2015. The Ruby has, subsequently, been replaced with a Snowglo 4004L from the first batch made in the Fall of '13.
The concept of a rephotographic survey is to rephotograph an area (usually, a geographic landscape, or a cityscape) to ducument the changes that have taken place over a period of time. Mark Klett has done this in regard to photographs made by photographers such as Timothy O'Sullivan, William Henry Jackson, and J.K.Hillers who photgraphed the western US in the mid to late 1800s. Mark found the locations where the original photographs were made from and rephotographed them in the mid to late 1970s so we can see the dfferences in those location over a 100 year timespan.
In my case, I rephotographed the same area in my dining room, using the 4004L Ruby photograph as the original reference, and I documented how that part of the dining room looks now, and using my 4004L SPC in place of the now gone 4004L Ruby.
Nice q-sawn oak paneling and sideboard.
Love the quartersawn oak!
Oh and the Ricks are nice too!
Provided that there is a thick wide red smile around the bridge pickup, I'm in!
Seems I never got a number after posting the bass... are they still given out?
No veneers, there. All solid oak. Even, the boards in between the battens are 1/4" glued-up panels.
Maybe, RIC can make a bass to match?
Oh, Do tell! (Would Love to hear what you have in mind.)
Unfortunately, since RIC halted production of the 4004, everyone’s speculating and now thinks they’re worth $1000 more than typical selling prices before. At some point,when these don’t sell at the exalted prices, hopefully they will come down to something reasonable.
I’m hanging onto my quartet, as each of them is set up totally differently. (Strings,woods,pickup positions,and much more).
+1 here for Sterling Fuentes, I've purchased 4 (hard to come by) Ricks from him and each has been exceptional .... Great guy and great musician too.
Yep. I missed your request.
Welcome to the club!
