Okay... so I bit the bullet and ordered a new 4003 bass. I know I was knocked out by the maple glow with the walnut wings, but I've always always wanted a fireglo and I couldn't resist!
You won't regret it---fireglo over walnut wings looks absolutely phenomenal. Congrats.
Andrew: Thanks! You think my 4003FG will have walnut wings? I wasn't sure. I purchased from Music123 and they say they will have stock of the FG on January 10. I'm wondering if that would be direct from Rickenbacker or NOS?

Your chances of it having Walnut head wings are very, very good, much better than the chances of it being in stock on January 10th. Where do they come up with this delivery info? Certainly not from us.

Mr Hall or Kenny, How does the dealer get shipping dates. I ask this because a number of writers state shipping dates. I have tried to get a shipping date on my order, but it has been impossible to get. Mr. Hall did tell me by Xmas 2006. Should someone put faith in a date a dealer gives them, unless it is a general statement like 9-18 months? It is upsetting to see someone state they will have the ric by such a date, when some of us cannot find out our shipping date. Please do not take this wrong. I understand a shipping date could be given if the dealer has it in stock, but how can a dealer give a correct date, if they dont have it in stock.

They don't. The only way a dealer can give anyone a specific date is if they A) Make one up. or B) Happen to call and check on the status of an order and find out that it was invoiced and shipped within the last couple of days. Even then a specific day would be sketchy, as fed ex ground ship times are a range of days rather than a specific number of days.

Good question. I'll ask!

I guess a good follow up here would be; what does Rickenbacker consider "recently" in the link:

"Click here to see which dealers/distributors have recently been shipped this model."

on the models pages. Music123 have "recently" been shipped 4003FG, but if that was six months ago, they are out of stock now.
