HI ALL-

On the Rick website, I keep looking for archival info or references to the 325v59, and others, v63-64(?).

Am I missing something in trying to source on them on the site?

Thanks,

Tinnitus

BEN or RICHARD:

I recently acquired a beautiful 325V59 in FIREGLO. According to the brochure, only MG and JG were made. The person who sold me this guitar told me that it was very rare - can you give me some more information about it? Serial # is W04777 from 10/97.

Many Thanks, Bob

Sounds like a neat guitar Bob...

I would be grateful if you would post a few pics here...

Best way to get a response is to call RIC customer service - they don't use the forum for inquires like that due to privacy concerns...

Indeed!

With FG finish it would seem this would make your V59 most rare!

Thank you for your quick responses!
Yes, it's a VERY cool guitar, unlike any that I've ever seen, and in absolute mint condition.
I'll be happy to send you a few pics - PM me your e-mail address(es) and I'll send them right out.
I'll check with the home office and report any information that they give me.

FOLLOW UP!

I spoke to Richard Cannata Today - apparently my guitar isn't as rare as I first thought.
He explained to me that initially only 2 colors were made - JG and MG. Toward the end of the model run, FG and other colors were run, as well. Without any production numbers to go on, it's difficult to say HOW rare a FG is, but they're out there....I'm fortunate to be one of the ones who actually own one.
