:?: Someone please enlighten me whats the deal with that pearl white 330 on RIC´s facebook page?

http://www.facebook.com/?sk=welcome#!/p ... =3&theater

Is it a special run for a certain distributer or a new color like the ruby? If its a new color... wow! (I guess it´s a one off for ebay...)

We are making ten for the UK. The picture that is on our FB page is more of a protoype version to see if they liked the pearl color with gold pickguards and oven TV knobs. The guitars will actually have F holes and the nicest grained Caribbean Rosewood fretboards that I have available.

Thanks for the answer, Ben!
Makes me envious. Somehow the tommys and the japanese guys get all the fancy stuff. ;) I wonder what that frivestring bass with maple fingerboard will come out...

Me too... It is intended to be a one-off, but I'm not certain what to do with it.

Hm... This is my suggestion. If its going to be an "one off"( and if you still have some black hardware), you could use some copper paint! Just like this:

TBD.

I am going to keep it until we start in on the actual 330 specials to make sure the finish matches.

I'm pleased to say we are one of the destinations in the UK :D

Can't wait to get them - I think one might just go home with me......
