Will any of these be staying stateside, like maybe going to Colorado (and thence onward to Texas!)????
Here's hoping, I like that one in the picture there, the fireglo one! :o :o :o

Shipping to Germany yet? Or just England?
Whichever is fine with me.

The first ordered units are going to the US, Canada, the UK, and Japan. Germany's down the the list a bit, it seems.

What a great bass. It was worth the wait. The neck is the best neck yet on a 4003. Pictures do not do the fireglo any justice.

So here I am, a Ric newbie! Some back story; I once tried a Ric at a guitar show many years ago and , due to a poor set up on the stand, it wasn't terribly nice to play and of course I couldn't hear it (you know what shows are like) so I went back to the usual bass world suspects, F, MM, etc. Anyway, whilst in a local bass emporium last week I was other trying some cheap, single pickup basses, I asked to try a 4003S that they had in just for fun and to check my previous experience. OMG!!! I fell love with something that I didn't need and couldn't justify, but had to have! What a thoroughly marvellous/monstrous tone it had and, for a passive bass, how loud was it? Just massive. Could I get Mrs Ezbass onside I wondered? Well I obviously did (I don't know how) as a week later a lovely Fireglo, 4003S was purchased and taken home. One sour note though, I got it home and discovered a small chip on the lower bout :( (it had been obviously bashed against another bass whilst hanging up) but went back to said emporium and they couldn't have been more sorry or accommodating. They had another one in a different store, but this one spoke to me (it said, "Buy me, buy me!") so they sorted out some suitable recompense for the damage and all was right with the world and a new Ric convert walked the earth :D Anyway, some pics seem in order:
