Maybe the back has a hint of very dark blue but I wouldn't call this one AZG.

4th from left is a Shadow. (...) It is my best sounding and best playing Rick. And that is what I read from most Shadow owners.
True dat.

In the immortal words of Nigel Tufnel: It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black.

Oh man, Bert... that's just awesome. And not a standard 4003JG among them!

I think the Shadow looks a little better
I think so too but the binding looks the same. It's noticeable from some distance, when a Fireglo w/CB from 20 feet looks like plain white binding.

you're tall and lanky, an SB 300 would look like a toy on you!  :mrgreen:

I can pull off a Tele  :mrgreen: It can't be smaller than a Tele, right?  ;)

Unless you are obsessive with a bass being ergonomic (and how can you, if you are the Ric moderator?  :mrgreen: ), you'll make the adjustment easily.
I find Rics extremely comfortable. Perfect balance on a strap due to the elongated top horn, and the thin body feels great. The binding never bothered me. I liked them from the first time I ever tried a Ric.

I was looking at this one because the price ($725) seems reasonable. But I think I'll wait for an SB300. It's the scale, the possible neck dive, and a long scale neck on an SG body looks a bit weird.

They used the same body for the 300 and 400 with the pickups at the same locations... I don't know if it's good or bad, intentional or just cost effective.

Looking at an SB400 I assume it has some neck dive... am I right? How serious is it?
