Well by the soumd of things he'd taken it off..

Then it somehow got mangled beyond all recognition..

Perhaps his dog ate it ?
Hate to think what he sent back to RIC....

I guess the guys at RIC must know..they rejected it..

I'm sure he must of told them how it came about !

Come on guys..open up..its gone on long enough.

Wow. I logged in as usual but went to this thread, which was long past its sell-by date, hoping to finally find out what had happened to "loyal Rick Owner"'s TRC that had RIC rejecting it for replacement out of hand.

After 70 posts, we still don't know, because he vanished.

I think he was really a drummer.

He was abducted by an alien UFO!

(I've heard they have a big "alien being" BBQ/Jubilee going on in Roswell, NM this weekend). ...

Yes and the UFO had an original Rickenbacker TRC made in Germany.

Like I said before, just make a ton of "authentic ric" trc's. brand'em on the back that they're not the original trc that came with the guitar it was meant for. that way, if anyone buys a "copy ric", they could check under the TRC to be sure that this guitar isn't entirely original.
Ya know what? THIS MAKES A LOT OF SENSE!!! Here's going it maybe one better - put the words "not authentic" (or something similar) in fine print on the front of the cover. Personally, If I were in the market for a Ric, I would lift the TRC to inspect the truss rods themselves. That would tell a pretty long story in and of itself.

This means that because I'm really (you said bad word) about my basses, I'll be on the lookout to get bent over for a white 4001 TRC on eBay at some point, after which, there's probably going to be a white 4003 TRC for sale on the open market, which is precisely the sort of thing that the factory doesn't want.
No, that's exactly what we WANT. Not the bent over part, but that the plate goes on the free market. The owners of genuine RIC's are most likely to be able to follow the market price whereas the copyists won't- otherwise they'd get the real deal to begin with.
-got that right.

No, no, GENUINE plates are always legally sold in any venue. eBay provides a great free market for GENUINE plates.
Actually there is one for sale on Ebay right now, but at 200 bucks asking price I rather buy the cheapest Rick on Ebay part it out and keep the TRC that came with it.
Huh? That might be an idea...
