I just want to get some black hardware to mount on mine, I've always liked blue and black together.

I've always wanted to try one. They are constructed differently from just about every other bass out there.

I had a Jetglow 4003 for about a year...Loved it, but, once I stopped gigging on bass, felt as though it should have a good home instead of just sitting in a case (hell, I've got MAYBE 8 hours on bass in the last year, all of it recording). AWESOME basses though.

I had a 4003 in Fireglo for around a year. Great bass with that Ric sound. I also own a Carvin LB70P. In the end, I only could justify keeping a single bass, so I sold the Ric. Someday when I have some extra cash, I'd like to own another Ric bass.

My uncle's got a '76 or so Rick bass and it's the tits. He got rid of the horseshoe pickup because he does a lot of Chris Squire type picking. It's the only bass I've ever played that actually felt comfortable to me.

Rics, especially the basses, are funny...Supply and demand in pure form...I bought my Ric for $820, played it for a year plus, and sold it for more than I paid. I've seen gently used ones sell for more than retail of new ones. Greatly depends on how backlogged the factory is, and inventory levels of new and used in your areas as far as what's in the shops. Vintage is another story completely.

I have this in my stable:



I recently took the shoes off to make it more finger friendly. Otherwise, with that cover over the bridge pickup it's not good for much unless I play it with a pick Squire-style (using the cover as a handrest), which I don't really do under normal circumstances. KILLER sounding bass. Yeah!

That's HOT! Yes, those pesky covers are right where my fingers wanna be.

And I realize I gave you the wrong LINK to give you examples. They've skyrocketed just within the last 6 months. $1600 seems to be average. I got extremely lucky, again, late at night I found mine with a Buy it Now of $1059. It had just been listed. It is literally brand new. I couldn't believe it, read it over again to make sure it didn't have a headstock repair or some catch it must've had and BAM, hit the button. The hang tag in the case with all the unopened case candy said "Sale $1639". I can't figure why he listed it so low. It's so nice I tried to go back and find a "beater" so as to keep this one pristine and I couldn't for less than $1500. It still is pristine and like new. They're in their own little niche for sure.

And the slanted fret models, guitars and basses where short lived, although a great concept. Naturally, they're highly collectible.
