Here is my updated Ric inventory, each with different Ric pickups for 8-) tone variances

FG 2006 330 has High Gains (without the threaded allen wrench posts)
JG 2004 660-12 has Scatterwound Toasters
FG 2003 360-12 has Scatterwound Toasters
FG 1999 V64 six string has the Hot Toasters
TQ 1996 650 Atlantis has the HB1's
JG 1981 370 WB has two Toaster-covered 2011 version High Gains (12k Ω and 11k Ω ) and an HB1 (15.4k Ω) in the Bridge
1973 480 has the early/transitional version 381 High Gains (straight posts without caps) Daphne Blue Refinish
MG 1961 Console Steel (8-string) with an original Horse Shoe

Whats on my "Wanted" list ? ? More Double Bounds, a Ric Bass, anything with Toasters

Just one:

2012 Mapleglo 360 (Yeah, I just got it!)

I briefly owned two, about six years ago, but had to sell them :(
- 660/12 Montezuma Brown. Kicking myself still for letting it go.
- 330/6 Mapleglo. I miss it, but the 360 is very similar, yet better. Adjustable pole pieces FTW.


RASing for another 12-string and a bass.

Is RASing like Russian GASing? :lol:

I own two:

A 4001 burgundy, made in August 1980. Re fretted and the bridge has been replaced with a Badass. I acquired this bass in 1988 and it has been my go to instrument for over 20 years. It is such a pleasure to play this bass that I often spend several hours a day practicing. I joke to my friends and say that the Rickenbacker company made this bass just for me... They just didn't know it at the time.
A 4004 Laredo in Maple glo. I have just recently acquired this bass and I have been playing it as much as I can to break it in. I bring it with me to work and practice with it (I work on a tug boat so I am away for weeks as a time). I love the way this bass sounds. The HB-1 pickups are so smooth and yet so powerful. The fretboard is very broad, wider than my Fender P-bass. I wonder if it was originally slated to be a 5-string? I have no complaints though as the wide neck prepares me for when I must play the upright.

I consider myself fortunate to have these two fine instruments. I don't need another, yet if I did buy another bass, I would get a late model 4003.
