I've only been playing guitar for 8 years or so. My experience is rather limited compared to some of you guys & gals. But I am having a devil of a time trying to figure out how to unintentionally destroy a TRC. Intentionally, I can think of lots of ways...followed by "why would you want to do this?"

Please share your story. I've read the Illiad and the Odessey, so I can handle long stories.

A side note...many years ago, I was reading about collectable guitars. I found it curious that the author was very specific regarding vintage Rickenbackers. I can't remember the details, but he was giving a great deal of caution to those who may think they are shelling out big bucks for the real thing. I took that as crooks more or less singled out Rics as being quite valuable and that the average public could be easily led astray.

No, I haven't. Should I? The title sounds a bit more contemporary to have been written by Homer, but if it's good I'd give it a read.

It's by Ayn Rand from the early 1950s, I believe. I've read it, it's LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG, good book, though.

Thanks, I'll consider it. But I'm more intrigued about the TRC story at the moment.

Quote from the above whotabs Web site:

How did you happen to choose a Rickenbacker?

PT: I liked the look of it, I think because The Beatles were using them. They picked theirs up in Germany, they were real German ones.


And here I was laboring under the delusion that Rics were American made :o{

What's a "real German one"?
