Yeah so many have lost their lives in the desperate search for a rickenbacker.
And if you are a lefty uuurrrggggghhhhh.


I've been trying to save for a Rickenbacker since 2001. I often wonder if I'll get into an accident and die before I get one.

Such a pleasant post, isn't it?


Okay, that's coming up on six years. If you are serious, then you must focus, my friend:

Given the wait time between ordering a new Rick and its delivery date, you should be able(so long as you are gainfully employed) to order a Ric, put down the deposit, and make payments to the dealer/save up by the time your guitar is ready, which appears to be up to two years for some models, but I'm not sure. Given that you are ordering a LH model, you should be afforded an even longer time to make payments/hide the $ under your mattress.

There is also the option of plastic, unless you've wrecked that option in the past. I don't carry balances my self, but there are those who do.

When I was just starting out playing music and bagging groceries at the local supermarket, I used to relate any possible and non-essential outing/expense in terms of how much gear I could buy with the $ that the outing/expense would cost me, with the result that I forsook many a ski trip(that's the cost of a Fender Twin or a new guitar), or other outing, et cetera, and was able to save. I also worked a lot of weekends and hours nobody else wanted to. So I suppose I was both earning $ and saving myself some $ by working all of those Saturday night date nights....

I realize that everyone's financial situation is different.
And I realize that you're only still in your 20s.
But six years is way too long.

There are no authorized dealers in Delaware. But there are, not too far from you, in New Jersey and Maryland. (And there is always mail order.)

You must get yourself a Rickenbacker (preferably a 12-string) guitar NOW!

Ric-O-nfused...If you want to be "unpacking" a Rickenbacker guitar, you need to purchase one! If you have been saving just 1 dollar a day for the last 6 years, you should have over $2,000 in your Rick Fund. Now is the time to get serious and make it happen. The sooner you buy, the sooner you will be unpacking.

Tomorrow, I'll let you know how long I waited to open my 370/12 BBR, which is scheduled to arrive tomorrow via UPS.
