Aye. I've owned a Ricky too, it was actually nice. It smelled like Ginseng for some reason. It was blue. I distinctly remembered the string spacing and the action. Both very good features. But man. Compare that to my one of a kind Mayones? Not even close. I've got two NAMM one off Mayones basses, my Warwick, and a Dingwall D-Roc now. And I'm pretty content.
