    I've been bitten by the Ric bug and thought I'd put this up for a possible trade. Looking for a JetGlo 4003 Ric, sorry, black only.

    Purchased this from Pat who was selling for a customer. On the surface, it just looks like any other black P bass, but underneath lies vintage woods. Really nice sound and great fit / finish / attention to detail. Pat mostly gets attention for his finishes, but his basses are really nice. Not entirely sure the vintage woods make a lot of difference, but it's cool and the price was right. So, it gets vintage woods and modern construction. Nice even sound all across the fretboard, no dead spots and no gank on the G string.

    Wilkins Classic 65 bass guitar serial # 0155 black gloss Parchment pickguard 75 year old Eastern European alder body, 150 year old hard rock maple neck core, 90 year old Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Vintage bridge, Wilkins '65 pickup.

    New, this would run about $4000. I will also sell for $1595 since I can get a Ric at Pick of the Ricks for that.

    Here's Phil Chen playing the actual bass:
