I saw the Ruby 4004 at RIC a few weeks ago. I thought it looked nicer than the old Ruby which was also very pretty.
I'll be taking more pics of these at the NAMM show later today.

Nice! I have an '80s Ruby 330, it'll be interesting to compare.

I'm guessing that unlike the original ruby which was a candy shot over a silver base coat, that this is a single stage paint like MID with metalic in the paint. I love it by the way :)

Oy! :shock:

Given Dane's comment I am curious too, as the old Rubys (Rubies?) I have seen in person look amazing and I hope this looks just as nice or, given modern technology, even nicer. 8-)

I have more NAMM pics, but I figured I'd show Ruby in this thread.

Excellent job. IMHO it looks best with binding.
