Is that 8 string a “custom order“ Ric from the 80’s?

I never saw another.

The head stock is cut left handed.

Perhaps one of a kind???


Looks like you are top bidder at this time... good luck!

Not all of them… : )

I do like the ones with the 1980’s finishes.

I have a silver one now. The red one (with BT) would be nice to get too.

I am sure that I will be out bid on the AZ Blue one, but you never know.

It ended up going for $1825.... A lot of interested lefty players bid on that one. The red one is still going and at $1843 with 2.5 days left! dswp is still in that one - good luck!

I should teach a class on how to bid (or not to bid) on Ebay. I've seen more Ricks start at $1.00 with "no reserve" and end up selling for what you could buy a new one for. Beware of "shill bidders"! Just remember that you should only bid ONCE at the END of the auction. Every time you re-bid, you're only out-bidding yourself! If anyone would like helpful tips on how to use Ebay, feel free to email me off list. -Dr.Phil

Exactly. I couldn't agree more.

Not at all, if you bid again and no one else bids it stays at the same bid level as it was, unless someone else has bid the same as the previous high bid in which case it goes up to the next increment. I.E. If it is at say $1000 (your bid) and you bid $1200 the high bid will stay at $1000 (your bid).

However, some "jerk" with high-speed internet (such as myself) will frequently wait until the very last minute to bid, so as to make sure the previous bidder doesn't have a chance to up their maximum bid.
