Hey, what about showing your Rickenbacker basses ?

(ok ok, i'll stop, but these are pretty ricks guys.)
My 1983 4001, sold it last year.
Info about it (and more pics) here.
My Chris Squire sig.
Info and pics here.
I had a 5 string Rick for awhile too, but don't have any pics handy. I bought a Geddy Lee Jazz about 6 months after I sold the 4001, so I guess I just missed out on being in the Geddy worship club!
I found a picture of my 5 string Rick. Unfortunately, I'm in it too, and it's huge so I'll just link to it.
Oh, this thread makes my heart flutter. No pics yet, but I own a '92 Midnight Blue 4003.
What do you think of the 5 string Ric?
Does it keep the traditional Ric sound on all 5 strings? Is the B string tight enough?
Here are a few I used to own:
It was my first 5 string, I bought it from a friend around 1990 I think. The spacing is very close, in fact, I believe the neck was not much wider than a regular 4. The scale length is the same as the 4's, which I think is less than 34". I'm sorry to say it was the worst B string I've ever come across.
The overall tone was nice, for the most part. I was playing through a big ol' Peavey combo in a couple bands (seen in the pic), but I do remember doing a couple recording sessions with it direct, and it sounded pretty darn good. Not really Ricky though, in the twangy sense. It was big and full.
Never totally loved it, even though it was my main player for a few years. Finally dusted it off and sold it last year when I went Roscoe crazy!
I'd post a picture, but there isn't a lot of visual difference between one JetGlo 4003 and another...
Ric 4003 Jet Glo made april 1998, and my 2001
Fender Geddy Lee Signature Model Jazz Bass.
Here is a recent picture of my 1973 Burgundyglo 4001.
And one more, this time a full view.
