Actually, they go into a big box and other than a couple used for very special restorations, they haven't been touched. Too bad they're not recyclable.


They are recyclable, please send that box with those old TRC to me and I will recycle them for you, trust me :-)

$200 for a TRC on eBay ? That's just about 50% of what I paid for my first 4001 brand new.
Yeah, and when they sold for that much I could fill up my car's tank for 5 bucks too.


John, they're totally recyclable. I'll recycle one right now for my very special restoration :-)

As for my $450 4001. That just shows my age I guess. I wish I still had all the basses I sold over the years. I'd still have that 4001 if I hadn't been endorsed by Wal basses in the 80's who threatened me with a sound thrashing if they caught me using it again.

Goodness!

All things of high quality rare and limited are orignally produced in very finite amounts.
This is one of the reason we purchase such products in the first place, apart from just the pure unbridled joy such high caliber products give to us.

I so wish I could replace my fine wine collection at the prices I originally paid for the bottles, but real world it just isn't so.

Once again I'm entirely grateful to a company who takes this isssue and it's policy regarding the TRC as seriously as it does.

Imagine my horror if I wound up with bogus bottles of 1982 Mouton Rothschild!

I was hoping the mystery of the destroyed TRC had been uncovered. I guess it still remains a mystery.

The Rickenbacker TRC in the photo appears to be real and it looks like it's from a 12-string.

As far as the TRC damaged beyond identification, the guy who has that TRC and started this thread hasn't been heard from on this website since his initial posts on March 25th. He may be "LoyalRickGuy" but he's not "LoyalRickWebsitePosterGuy." Only he can tell the "long story" and we are yet to hear the details.
