Hi all. I was considering buying my 4003 online (since I've been waiting 2 1/2 years allready from my local dealer) probably at the music connexion with Mike Parks. I think a lot of you have got your stuff from him, I'd just like some feedback. Sending 2000$ far away from home in hope of getting a bass back by mail is kinda scary, since I don't live next door (Montreal)! So if all of you say i'ts secure and that you didn't have any problems whatsoever, that would encourage me alot!

I give Mike Parks an "A" rating.

do you think that shipping to Canada will make it any different?

He'll just have to fill out that silly triplicate commercial invoice form. He's great to talk to you, so you could call and do it over the phone...

I got my 2009 4003 for a GREAT price through Mike's web page. I could never get him to say very much (via e-mail) but he was always honest and dependable and I'd do business with him again.

I've brought many Rickenbackers into Canada via Mike Parks. He's always a pleasure to deal with and I've never had any sort of issue. Just remember that you will still be charged GST/PST on the declared value as well as a brokerage fee - these are customs/shipping company fees and have nothing to do with Mike.

Whilst the window was open on Rick parts sales outside North America a couple of years back, I bought a reasonable parcel of hardware for a 4001 restoration from Mike and found him to be totally professional, polite and personable. I would do business with him again without hesitation.

Mike was great when I dealt with him a year ago. I had a shipping damage issue, and he called me immediatly when he learned of it. We resolved it promptly and fairly on the phone right then and there. He is genuinely concerned about his customers and instruments. I would gladly buy from him again (if I had any spare cash).
