I will keep this to the one Ric (there are so many others)

around 1990 I bought a 330 in mint condition in NJ, really liked it. I was living in Bethlehem PA at the time and there was a small music store in town. A new owner took over and there was a mapleglo John Lennon model, short scale ( not sure if it was technically a reissue or not). I got a great price, I think about $400 and walked after looking at it many times. Well you know the rest, i went back to buy it and someone was smarted than I was. That's the Ric I let get away. I still get annoyed at myself when I think about it.

Summer 1980 I was buying my first bass. Long story short, I bought a white '78 4001 for $425.

There was also a 4005 on the wall for the same price.

1985- A late 70's black (I believe) Ric bass, but at the time I thought it too heavy and put it back. I took a Japanese-made Squier Precision home instead. Still have the Squier, still wish I'd forked over the extra $300 for the used Rickenbacker, heavier as it was.

As it is now, I'd be very happy to have both.

In 2012 I saw this 4003 JG in a shop. It costed 1 700 Eurodollars. I didn´t have the Money for it at the time and after a while it was sold. About 14 months later the same shop had a 4003 MG that costed only 1 500 Eurodollars. This time I bought it and was glad I didn´t buy the first one. It saved me 200 Eurobucks that I spent on strings instead

You have to add the output flange gasket between engine and transmission and also the transmission pan.

Just wondering lately about a Rickenbacker I traded back circa 2000. I had Rickenbacker 360F Mapleglo that I bought from a friend who had given it to his father before he, the friend left for Nam. His father passed away. I bought the guitar for $1000. I never cared for the guitar because of its size. Way too big. I had my eye on a Mapleglo 325V59. I found one at PM Blues in Pawtucket, RI. I worked out a deal with Paul. I traded, even steven, my 360F for a brand new 325V59. No cash. I probably got taken price wise, but I have the guitar I want. Just curious if anyone out there in Rickenbacker land has a Mapleglo 360F with a huge red stain on the back side. I had worn a red shirt on a hot sweaty night and the shirt dye bled through the finish and stained the wood. Just want to know where it is and how it's doing.
