I just ordered a Ric 360 6 string in Fireglo online. Everybody (and I mean EVERYBODY) online who sells Rics are on back order. The website I ordered from says they are getting a shipment in June.

What is the story with Rickenbacker being so far behind in production? Is the company having financial problems?

Nope. They just have a large demand for their product and a finite capacity for production.

It's really sadly ironic when a business is doing so well that it can't keep up with all the business somehow it's made out that there's a financial problem.

Howdy,

I actually see it the opposite way. When a company is doing so well that it cannot keep up with the backlog, they are doing something right. I see it as financially sound, a great product, and most of all a want/need for the product. In other words, just keep on keepin'on.

I'm really starting to have weird feelings about this dejavu thing, and I can see why, but for the life of me it just seems like dejavu all over again.

Over here in the UK, and not five miles from where I live, they build the Morgan sports car.
Waiting times worldwide for these little gems vary from two to five years. No-one has ever suggested that they are in financial trouble and it would be quite indefensible for anyone to suggest so. It's a foregone conclusion that a bespoke car cannot be rushed, no matter how many have been produced in the past. They are superior in quality and quality just takes time.
And so it is with Rickenbacker guitars.
I've yet to order a Morgan (actually, I've just got my bus pass, but a bus won't get me to gigs...) and I don't suppose I'll ever order a new Ric (at my time of life that would be tempting fate...), but I can understand (and envy) those who do.
You are tapping into a legend: don't knock it, feel proud to be part of it.

Love and peace

Well, neither will a Morgan, unless you play a Backpacker!

FYI, the retired MD of Rosetti is a Morgan owner and afficionado.

From the looks of things, farthest thing from it. Around where I live, we call that situation "job security!"

The approximate wait time for a Wayne Henderson guitar ...

... is about TEN YEARS!

Hope that makes you feel a little better.
