So, I'm buying this bass off my friend, but I have no idea what it is. No binding, dot inlays, single jack. Here's a piccy to help:



Halp?

Except my new Rickenbacker. My Yamaha? Different story. Luckily, I have great friends who sell me stuff. He's probably sat at his laptop right now typing 'luckily, I have great friends who buy stuff from me'.

Oh, and it's a proper Rick. His name is to be Astley.

I, personally, have never liked the look of Rics. Lemmy's signature bass is the most horrible looking bass I've ever seen.

Actually, that mono jack makes me suspicious. All ricks I ever have heard of have the characteristic double output jacks.

As it says on that site, this is just a no-frills 4003. I remember Crispin saying something to me to that effect, but I was too high to take much notice.

I hate you.
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Could always be a 4001S.


Whatever it is, you lucky lucky man. How's your Ibanez (whichever one fell, I can't remember)?

The Yamaha? It's fucked. The controls have all caved in, so I'll have to make some sort of 'control plate' for it or something.
#27
Wow I want to see some pics of that damage! Is it properly caved in?

How do people play with their bass so low like that?
It's uncomfortable and it doesn't look cool to me at all.
#30
I play mine that low, if not lower!

Damn =[
At least it wasn't the ATK, I love that bass.

Also, playing that low isn't really more difficult if you're playing stuff that isn't jazz or anything. I always lower my strap as much as possible when playing punk, it just suits the genre to do so.

EDIT: You do have an ATK, don't you?

I don't actually! Funny you should mention the ATK, though- I like them quite a lot and I was thinking of getting one before the Rick came along!

Ah, I may have looked at your Yamaha and thought it was one. Either that or I've seen you mention them.
Yeah, I wouldn't mind picking up an ATK, They've got style.

In the unlikely event that Crispin decides he actually wants to keep the rick (he doesn't like it), then I'd get an ATK. I really, really like them.
#35
How much are you getting it for?

#36
He hasn't decided yet. He needs the money, so I tell him to ask for what he needs, but he doesn't want to rip me off because I'm a friend- bless 'im! I'll sneak him a little extra if he charges me too low.
#37
If I had the cash, I would willingly give it all up for that bass, it's sexy as hell.

It is- and I shall love it forever. See, before I got to know Crispin, Queen Adreena had been my favourite band since about 2002. They've got a pretty small but dedicated fanbase, and I was one of them. Anyway, I was watching some of their vids today... I knew I'd seen it somewhere before...
#39
Before you jump on this, check the neck. Make sure it's in decent shape. A lot of people who buy **** Ricks get ****ed over when it comes to the neck profile. The neck is REALLY important on a Rick, as it is highly sensitive. Check that truss rod.

Wasn't Chris Squire's Rickenbacker like that, with a mono jack and dot inlays? (Yes it was)

Wasn't his like a Rickenbacker 1999 or something like that? A budget model?
