Wilco played here in Jackson, MS, on Saturday night, and Jeff Tweedy used no fewer than 3 different Ricks, including a FG 381. He also used two different 360s, both of which appeared to be 6 strings of the 21-fret variety (or 22?), with toasters - a MG and a FG. I believe the FG one was a bit older as it had no "R" tailpiece.

Nels Cline didn't pull any Ricks out the whole night, but I understand he has been using them live recently.

Nice to see Tweedy's return to Ricks - I know they were prominent in early Uncle Tupelo days in Jay Farrar's hands.

Jeff's Ricks are 60's 21-fret models. The Fireglo one - "with no R" - has an Accent Vibrato (making it a 365).

Or it might have a trapeze tailpiece.

It might - but it doesn't.

They frequently seem to have nice Ricks on offer.
