...of sorts. ;)

Actually the guitar itself probably couldn't have been constructed and presented any better. However, I shall now be nit-picky. :mrgreen:

As I looked at my guitar, I noticed the 'Proudly made in the USA' label attached to the pickguard had a strange appearance. As I stared at it, I realized I would have to either adjust my eye balls to an up-side-down configuration or, flip the whole guitar upside down to be able to read it! :? I soon realized that the problem was that the label had been affixed to the pickuard...UP-SIDE-DOWN! OH MY! :o

I thought to myself, "RIC QC must really be slipping! ;) But, it's OK. After pondering the affect of correcting this anomaly myself with the possibility of voiding my warranty, I boldly and carefully removed said label conundrum and re-located it to a more suitable and safer haven. It now resides on the back of the headstock where long life of it's proud display will ensue! :D

Actually, I'm glad I found this 'error' as it allowed me to consider the possibility to preserve this label and move it to a safer location. Thanks, RIC! :D

Please observe the attached photo:

Your post title really had me worried....... for a while at least!

Now you have another to add to your Rickenbacker collection, you have a selection of vintage and now new. Anyway enjoy them all and congratulations on the new 660.

That must've been one of the labels intended for a lefty model... :-)

Hmmm? I hadn't considered the 'rare' factor this guitar may have had, before I moved the label. I guess I'm out of a lot of money now, eh?

Since the title of my thread had been 'moderatorified', no doubt, to protect the innocent, I'm sure this whole thing is not typical of RIC QC and the label in question was simply upside down in the stack of labels that was used during the assembly line process. Perhaps the label stacker could use some remedial corrective training? ;) I'm sure more attention will be applied while further implementing this important process. :mrgreen:
