Wow, that's a real nice booth. I especially like the etched plexiglass (or something similar) Rickenbacker logo's holding the instruments.

By the way, Happy 75th Aniversary!!!

So how many of us are looking at the Ricks in the pics and wondering if that one is theirs?!

I would assume those will go into some special hands, but you never know, do you! I was hoping to spot some new model or some such thing.

Yeah, I even got out a magnifying glass to look over a couple models just to look for something new. Great bass pic with 4 beauties in it. 8 counting the bass backs on the other side of the display.

Great photos in the gallery of the Rickenbacker booth at the NAMM show. Imagine if we could walk into a store and see that selection of RIC guitars on display. Awesome. I also noticed a couple of VOX amps just waiting for an input jack. It's a rock and roll fantasy!

By the way, when I said new models, I meant other than the 1996 that is there on page 2 of the NAMM photos.

A great looking stand !

I couldn't see any 75th Ann. guitars though.

Hey John,

Just use Firefox and add the "Image Zoom" extension. Then just zoom in and out of any image on any page!

The RIC booth is nicely done - as you'd expect from RIC. Whoever did their booth design, layout and lighting is to be commended; although it looks like they consulted heavily with senior RIC staff on the look. I love the plex RIC stands (will they be available in the boutique?) and the main RIC monolith. RIC obviously went to a great deal of effort for this show, when it is obvious they don't need the extra sales or publicity. Kudos for keeping the RIC mystique out there, especially on the 75th Anniversary!

Congrats to all involved! And thanks for the great pics! Did someone say WALLPAPER??

One of my coworkers went to NAMM. Since he knows I'm a Ric lover, I hope he brought back a souvenier for me!

The pix of the 1996 shows the first actual view of it and the AFG COY. REAL nice! I wonder how long it will take my three FG Rics to evolve into AFG?

I like those plexiglass (?) guitar holders too. Where do I sign up!?!
