Hi

I know someone started a Thread similiar to this about 3 years ago.

But, I think it would be most interesting if we get some " 'au currant " statistics from current Ric owners regarding the number of Rics you own, model, year acquired, if you purchased "new or used" and your gender, present marital status , age as well as where you live.

Here goes for me:
I own 3 Rics, all purchased new from bonafide Ric dealers.

1.Ric 330FG-purchased new-May, 2006
2.Ric-325C64-purchased new-October, 2006
3.Ric-360/12C63-purchased new-June, 2009

I'm a 58 year old male, presently single and I live in San Bernardino, CA.

I currently own 2 rics:

1. 2003 mapleglow 325C58: bought used (as new) in 2006 and changed the vibrato to a bigsby myself

2. 2006 325C64: Bought new in 2006, but didn't get it until June 2007 as I then had to save up more money to visit the states to get it haha!

Hoping to add a few more in the next few years

I'm Rory, a 23 year old male with a girlfriend who doesn't understand why I spend all my money on guitars, from Glasgow, Scotland

I gots me three:

1976 4000 FG---second owner, purchased in 1986,
very good condition, had replaced the pots many years back, probably should do so again

1977 4001 White (now very cream),
was a mess when I got it, it's now basically stock with a hippyshot bridge---purchased around 1997-1998

1981 4080 JG (bass and 6 string) purchased Oct. 2005 on ebay, third owner, very good condition, totally stock except for a small solid core jumper wire to bypass he treble cap, which is twisted in place, not soldered, simple to remove with no trace of ever being there.

I'd love to have a new 4003 in MID, a 660/12, and a 330 in FG.

I'm 43, married (she let me get the 4080!, great gal), two kids, in Canada's Ocean Playground.

Well, apparently not enough!

Just 1 360/6 purchased new from "major on-line retailer".

Looking for a 12 string.

I'm over 50, married, but probably not for long if I buy another guitar!;-)
