I'll vote for Dave as Henry's replacement... ;)

LOL! Just pointing out that times have changed in China. Now if Epi would only get out of the sub-$200 crap and use bridge studs that won't pull out...

If I ran Gibson, there would be more basses, a hell of a lot fewer variations of Les Paul models, and everything would be made to the same standard of materials and workmanship.

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

Nice!

Do you have a black rug to show display your blue basses on?  :mrgreen:

No, I don't. But they look good against a white wall also. ;-)

Does Rickenbacker normally get paint on the truss rod nuts or could this possibly be a re-fin?
That is pretty normal.

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.

It does not take a lot of space to make these things... could be some Chinese shed or garage in downtown Beijing... ;)

No way. Pickup factories aren't big but no way an international corporation with two modern Chinese factories would be buying pickups out of a shed or garage. It's 2017, not 1977.

2016 tour of Epiphone Qingdao factory. In Japanese since it was made for a Japanese distributor, with some remarks in English. Thunderbirds are made in this plant.
