I just put a 4003 Ruby on hold at a local shop. The Guitar Manager was unpacking it the other day when I was there. This morning I phoned him to see if it was still there. It was still there, so I went down, and gave him a deposit to hold it till I get the balance due on it. It's gorgeous. 8-)

You had some good timing on that one.The 4003 looks especially good in the Ruby Red.

I think it looks great in Ruby. I had to sell my 2012 4003 MG a short time ago. I promised myself I'd get another 4003. Not thinking I'd run across the 4003 Ruby.

That's a 4003SPC "Blackstar," one of a limited edition of 200.

cassius987 and cjj are correct. You guys need the book to discover this and more about some of the more unusual Rick bass models!!!
