A guitar playing co worker of mine has a Japanese Fire Glo rickenbacker copy bass that she bought years ago but has not played in a while. She wants to sel it to me for $300 and if I dont buy it she is going to trade it in on Fender Telecaster. She trusts me enough that she let me take it home and play it in my bass amp. When she bought it the previous owners had put an actul Rickenbacker truss rod cover on it and so it like a real Ric except that the neck plate says made in Japan. I like the way it feels and sounds. But I dont know if $300 is good for something thats not a real Ric. If it were a real ric I would have done it in 5 seconds. One other thing is that a real Ric is out of my budget at this time and I have always wanted a Ric. I have to either take the payment to work on Monday or take the bass back. Would bring the cash in on Monday or take the bass into work on Monday if you were me?
