    I think you're going to have a hard time finding a store in the US that will admit to selling new Rics internationally...

    I think so too.
     
  7. Um...why? Patent?
     
  8. Yeah but they don't ship Rickenbacker worldwide.. do they?
     
  9. Rickenbacker won't allow US dealers to ship to a country where there already is a distributor for their products.
     
  10. I know, thats why i asked for a shop who will ship them overseas, like "used" or something..
     
  11. Perhaps Bass Central, if they got Rick, will agree to do it!
     
  12. Yeah i already had two succesfull deals at basscentral. But I'm not sure if they have any Rickenbacker 4003? I already sent an email to Beaver and grasshopper. I'm waiting for their reply..

    Thanks for all your answers so far..
     
  13. Interesting policy. I guess that's good for the distributors. Keeps other countrys from cutting in on their sales base. (...or is that "bass sales"... :D )

    Thanks for the info. :)
     
  14. Any other suggestions?

    You'll find that most Bass companies have rules like this to protect international distributors. Unfortunately, you'll always have disreputable stores that will ignore the terms of the contract.
     
  16. You might want to try www.ricpage.com or www.pickofthericks.com.

    2 excellent companies with excellent reps. Im not sure what their shipping policies is. But if you email them they will let you know qucikly.
     
  17. Thanks :)

    Basscentral doesn't sell any Rickenbackers :(
    Anyway but maybe ricpage..
