Weller reminds me of John Lennon, or even Peter Buck when it comes to some things: He's kind of a whiny hypocrite. I know that will offend some people, but it's how I perceive him. He doesn't mind doing endorsing Epiphone, but he won't do a signature Ric. He's suppose to be a "conservative," more open-minded figure of the punk scene (That word has nothing to do with his politics!), but he got mad when someone told him Tony Blair is a Jam fan. So, I have to ask the question to Weller: Why the double standard?

However, it is true that he doesn't use a Rickenbacker too much these days...

I love the Jam and a lot of Weller's solo stuff, but I doubt I'd buy a Weller Signature model Rick.

Weller probably doesn't want a signature Rick because his use of the spectacular brand we all love was most substantial during his Jam era, and reminds him that the blossoming of his success involved two other spectacular players as well, people he famously did not get on so well with later on, though he and Bruce Foxton are apparently pals again.

I like the idea of an Artist model that involves the artist helping design a model of one's favorite brand that has all the features the artist thinks would make the guitar ideal, rather than a replica of the guitar the artist played.

Looks like Paul has a new album called Sonik Kicks coming out on March 27. It's so cool he's on the same label (Yep Roc) with Nick Lowe and Robyn Hitchcock!

I agree with Artisan4. I got into Rickenbackers first through The Jam (and The Smiths a bit later), then worked my way backwards to The Who, The Beatles, The Byrds, etc.

BBC Radio 6 have done an interview with Weller and the cyclist Bradley Wiggins.Hasn't been broadcast yet but snippets of it are out.Wiggins collects vintage guitars and says he has around 50 of them.Would guess there would be some Rickenbackers in there as he is a big fan of The Who and The Jam.Wellers says he has nothing like 50 guitars in his collection but we know for sure there are Rickenbckers in it.His own and a 12 string that Pete Townsend gave him.All gathering dust by the sounds of things.Shame.
