Is the second Allen key for string spacing adjustment lockdown?
There isn’t any string spacing lockdown. The string spacing is the roller saddles and there isn’t any way to lock them into position. I mean they really don’t need to be locked, once the strings are on and tuned up they don’t move. It is however a little annoying when you change strings.
The RB set feels not quite as low tension as the LTF or TI sets. But are definitely on the low end of the scale for tension and flexibility. There’s about a $20-25 difference in the pricing, making the Labella set
the low-price winner.
Got it. I was thinking it might be like the Hipshot where the spacer does lock.

Obviously, she was paid to be there.
Shine a light under the backside of the bridge and you'll see the hex heads for adjusting intonation. My 2021 with V2 came with 2 wrenches and one fits the screws to adjust intonation, it's just fiddly to get it into the hex head.
All of my Rics have plenty of sustain.
That's probably technically true, but of no real world consequence.

You have to loosen the string first and then use the key. It will not work with the strings under full tension. The thicker key that was with the bass is the right key for intonation. I also have a FG 4003s quite new and the intonation was far off beeing right. So be prepared to work a little on it. It is worth it.
I cant say i disagree...
Indeed, as do mine - that was one of the draws for me (along with just about everything else) - the neck-pickupless-sustain-augmentation comment isnt meant to be anything more than an aside after listening to enough of phil x and why he pulls the neck pickup out of most of his guitars haha

Oooh. I like that. It looks like British Racing Green... plus it has the checkered binding.
I think it's Candy Apple Green. Photos can trick the eye sometimes.
Definitely not BRG, it’s CAG. Closer to baby puke green. I love it!
I don't think I have seen a Ric in antigua....
Don't do it...Just don't.
I don't understand why anyone would, short of being totally broke and moving out onto the street, buy this bass a year ago and then sell it. The seller says it's virtually unplayed. And each time I see the price tags that sellers are asking I keep picking up my receipts from the 70's and throw-up a little in my own mouth.
