Understandable, and of course, the best choice for you. Congrats on your replacement guitar. You know, I’m sitting here reading this, and I realize that during my dozens of visits to a very active Guitar Center, I never saw a 620; they’re just not that common. On the same day you return your 325, you “find” the 620. It seems as though the 620 found you. Too cool. Congrats again.

Thanks Maxwell, and yes, it was serendipity I suppose finding the 620 after returning the 325... I really wanted the 325 for the John Lennon factor, but I do have my Hofner bass and I'm a huge McCartney fan. Perhaps I'll keep looking in the used market for a 325. Oddly, GC does not have a great opinion on Rics and I've heard it a three different GCs throughout VA...

I used Grease to stop any slight buzz from the bridge on my Ric 325
(I have 12s on it so no staying in tune problems)
However! A more annoying problem is: When you lower the Bridge down to a nice easy playing feel Height for the Strings etc!
This results in a Fret Buzz on Bottom E String and also slight scratchingness from the top E String!
Upon looking at the Roller Bridge closely, I notice that although the Saddle's Rollers are obviously set at Heights follow the Curve of the Neck!
For some reason the Top & Bottom E String Saddle's Rollers are set WAY TOO LOW!
IS THIS A DESIGN FAULT???
I believe that is why it is almost impossible to set a reasonably low playing action, without E String Rattle/Fretbuzz.
I thought I saw a site selling a more finely machined Ricky Roller Bridge, but can't seem to find that site again!
Any Thoughts?

Grease Stopped The Slight bridge Rattles on my Ric 325!
However! It is almost impossible to get a Reasonably Low Playing Action without experiencing Fret Buzz on The LOW E String and also a little Fret Scratchyness on the Top E String!
I believe this is caused by a Design Fault with The Bridge Saddle Roller Heights!
(The Rollers have Heights Set to follow the Neck Curve!)
BUT!!! THE Top & Bottom E String Rollers seem to set WAY TOO LOW!
Any Thoughts???
