That's good because it's ugly as all get out :laugh: Sorry but Ric's just never appealed to my sense of esthetics.

Ah, wha d’you know Mike! It is a thing of BEAUTY. :D :D :p :D :D

Really Mike who cares what it looks like, I can't remember the last album I listened too that that thought ever crossed my mind. lol

I think it looks simular to old Gretch style body, certainly if it where starburst red, with a white pick gaurd., and another whole on the other side.


Nice. Real purty.

Mike’s blind.

NICE! You lucky dog! OK. Fess up. What’d you have to buy the wife?


Dang (slaps forehead with palm of hand) You could have had a Les Paul! LOL

Just kidding dude, nice axe, if you get bored with it I’ll send my home addy to ya and even pay shipping if ya let me have it.(for free that is).

Where did you sell the wife? (I would have to sell mine to get a new axe):stuck_out_tongue:

Hee hee hee. It was 1000 US bushy dollars, not 1500. Gotta py for quality! As to my wife: she is a musician too. We do these things in pairs. I buy a microphone, she buys a pile of Chopin Etudes or the like. :) So this time she is buying an Irish Harp, this one is the leading candidate:

One thing with strings on for another thing with strings on ?

Sounds fair.

Wait a minute - hers has got waaaaay more strings on it.

I hate to brake it to you, but you’re behind now …


Enjoy it - it look very cool (and it looks like it will sound good as well) - when will you post some home made clips ?

I wanna hear some re-cords with that axe Tom. :D

Sorry guys but this is a thing of beauty

It’s even prettier with P90s.

Actually, Mike, that is quite beautiful. Like teryeah said, better with p90s, but still…

Hey Yaz, I have been remiss in not posting anything for like a year now. Gonna get some space somewhere, perhaps this weekend. :)

Yeah - nice curves & lines. I actually like the humbucker look better than the P-90’s but I have P-90’s on my Epi '56 re-issue (well I have 1 P-90 because I’ve put a mini-humbucker in the bridge position).

I’d rather put my money into a parker fly…but its nice, despite its hideous color. :D

TomS, I’ve tried one or two of those Ricks but I didn’t like the necks. They sure looks good, though…

Gimme the P-90’s !

Will be looking for a post when I come back Tom, anxious to here the Rick.
