RIC has put the kibosh on the 4004 - - EDIT: "Just on hiatus"

As Paul Boyer has noted, after 25 years the 4004 is not listed in the new price list.

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

That's too bad. Sales must be declining, I can't think of any other reason.

Quoting Ben Hall over at the Rick Resource Forum:

"The 4004 is just on hiatus for a short time. We have some adjustments to make to it. Yes, the HB's will stay."

I remember when the Cii/5 was "put on hiatus" and never came back. OTOH maybe they'll bring it back now with those new trapezoid pickups.

That would kill it off for good.

"on hiatus" at RIC = it's pinin' for the fjords.
