I'm busy with getting some pics in my Photobucket, so I thought: Let's make a nice RicPic thread here:)

Now everybody comes out of the closet with their Ric's.

Next we will see Mark here with a Ric & dressed as a man- now that would be shocking!

Nigel, did you paint that MMT bass yourself?
A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Guilty. LOL. Funny thing, I kinda did the opposite of McCartney, the 4001S is originally MG so I had to give it a FG finish then splatter the MMT thing over that. I substituted the teal for the silver/grey he used, just didn't care for the silver and decided I didnt want it to be an exact copy of his. One night, after a 6-pack of Shiners I went to the shed and got the paint out...I'm happy with the results. It's probably been 10 years ago now.

Wouldn't it be cool if RIC did a limited run of MMT replicas? Basically a custom paint job on non-S c64's. How about 70 basses for McCartney's 70th birthday, in 2012? Maybe get him to sign them... with a spray can  ;D

So...it was the Shiner Bock that made you do it! Wonder how things would have turned out if you'd had a 6-pack of Dos Equis? 

And all this time I assumed this was your "Tragical History Tour" bass.  ;D  But then the street sign would have to say "Denny Lane,", right.  ;)

Speaking of that...if I didn't already know your Penny Lane story, I would ask you where the street sign in that photo came from. But you've showed the pic several times on different boards, and nobody ever asks. Guess nobody else is curious.  :-\

Is there even such a thing as a Penny Lane in Liverpool or London? I just knew of people swiping the Abbey Road sign.
