If this isn't a cool Ric, I don't know what is. I'm in loooooove.



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

A little too worn and a little too reddish for me.

I wouldn't be surprised if this gets into the upper teens.

Well I guess that goes to show that one man's cool Rick is another man's POS, ;D
It is well played though, probably comfortable.

I think prices are definitely lower, you can see it on epay. Even new T-Birds have dropped from a high of about 2300 to about 1500 over the past year. Have Ricks dropped at all?

Beauty, eh? I haven't followed what these have sold for recently. Over 2K?

Sure over $2K. but typically less than Blackstars. Probably the yellowing is a turn-off.

Still a bargain compared to old beat-up Fenders.

I see he was smart enough to amend his description, that may have helped him get more for it.

Yes but with Rics, no one claims that the old ones sound better.
