  • So I bought a Rickenbacker today on a whim.

    I got done work early today, so I stopped by Guitar Center on the way home.

    After looking around for a few minutes, I saw a beautiful, mint condition "used" 2004 Jetglow 4003 for only $800. So I bought it. I can't believe it was only $800.

    Oh man, oh man, oh man. I own a Ric. Whoo hoo!

    Sadly, I don't have my digital camera with me, so I'll post better pics tomorrow. This scan of the headstock is the best I can do for today to prove it exists.

            Could be a shadow puppet. Or possibly several pounds of cookie dough molded to look like a Ric headstock.

            Sounds fishy to me.

                      yeah well you can't eat that one you bought today! It's worth $800 and is far to valuable to be scoffed down like a donut! ... Save it for when the Queen comes to your place for dinner ...
