Hi everyone! I've owned a couple Ricks over the years, including a 4003/5 I wish I'd never sold. But I have a real soft spot for 8-strings, though being left-handed those are few and far between. I'd love to find a left-handed 4003/8 someday, but I'm not sure if there were any produced?

Thanks!
Pete

Anything's possible but I strongly suspect that none were produced.

Come to think of it I've never seen a left handed double neck. Were any of these made?

Too bad. Are there no records available to document production numbers?

Indeed, there are approximately 30 four drawer file cabinets which include our records back to 1931. Someday someone will accurately tabulate all of this for public consumption but that's a job for another day.

No volunteers for that job yet? :D

Thanks for your help!

Realistically, this is several years worth of work and will require the efforts of someone very familiar with the product and history of the company.
