Oh. This is an old song, but my wettiest dream is model 4005V64-66? Just simply 4 string/E-bass with toasters.

We have to be a realistic. Just simple model, no customs. No 5-string, no 12 different colour options.

I know, what Mr Hall might say about this, but may I still ask couple questions?

All your answers for this re-issuing makes me afraid, that you are not interest to even try to build a competitive semiacoustic bass at all?
Do you afraid, that it isn´t perhaps going to be good enough?

OK. Then maybe a new model?
Bass shaped like 360 or 380?

Life is short. Maybe you should to make a some kind of official wish-list?

Most of us are adults and loyal rickenbacker users. And most of us are wealthy enough to stand behind our words. For example I´m ready easily to pay reasonable price for a new brilliant semi-acoustic bass.

Twenty years ago today...After mid-80´s, when you closed proceeding those 4005´s, there is a huge number of new generation bass players in the market plus we older-ones, which are very interest to find vintage kind of sound.

You have a great history of products, image, personnel, brand and whatever? Just a tiny risk?

I'd like to see non-V & C issues of the 325 & 350 added to the mix, and have them stay as normal production models. They would be such a nice compliment to the 330, 360, 620, etc. I'd like to see them offered with the normal features and color options like the models mentioned.

Rickenbacker carried the 320 for years in their standard series guitar catalog even while the B Series 325 were offered.

I think it was dropped when the V Series produced the 325V63 and 325V59 along with the John Lennon Limited Edition which came in about 3 different ways.
325JL, 355JL 355/12JL

Presently the C Series has two models 325C58 and 325C64 being made along with the 350V63 and the 350/12V63

I don't kknow if the company is going to add a 325 to the Standard Series when they are trying to market these 4 models?

The best thing to do is look for a nice used 320 from the 70's or the 80's if that's the road you want to go...

Speaking of the 320 guitars, for a limited time Rickenbacker also produced a 320/12 like the one they made in 1964 for John Lennon.

A tie between my existing 325/12v64 (which I've had for a few years now) and "my" pre-ordered 360/12C63 (for which I'm still waiting) - with the pickguard of the former signed by JL & the pickguard of the latter signed by GH... (Well, it does say "dream", doesn't it!)

A reissue of John Lennon's 4th Rickenbacker guitar, Model 1996. You may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

If you guys wait until January maybe you can see what Rickenbacker is going to offer after the NAMM show.

At another forum someone said it's probably the Rose Morris 1996 Export Model, better known as the 325 Fireglo with an f-hole is what Rickenbacker is going to offer.

The one John Lennon played had the f-hole in the two o'clock position, it's the one collectors are after.
They came in both 1 and 2 o'clock positions for some reason?
