A new prototype: FG/BT w/CB binding, ebony fretboard
« on: June 16, 2017, 12:33:51 PM »
RIC posted this to fb and Twitter: "A prototype finished today. General production worthy or nah?"



There's also a pinkish 4003. RIC used the hashtag #mykindoftownchicago so my guess is these will be sold by CME.


A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Nah on that Fireglo, if that's what they're calling it.

Double nah on the Pepto-Bismol pink.

Triple yay on the pink, but with all black hardware. Looooooong shot, I know.
How do you tell a fake Gibson bass on ebay?

The headstock is not broken.

I have fulfilled my quota of pink basses (1), and even if I hadn't, I would never consider it on a Ric.

However, I find the FG variant very appealing.

I could go for that....
