Bernie Rico JR Hybrid

I had always hoped that one day I would get the opportunity to check out a Bernie Rico guitar, but the price tag of the Handmade USAs made that for the most part a pipe dream - much like owning a USA Dean. When the Hybrids were announced/released - it seemed a bit more feasible, but still kind of hard to spend $1500 on an import guitar that I had never physically seen or played. A few wks ago, I was browsing the Rico website - just checking things out and noticed the Hybrids had gone down in price from the original $1500. I decided to give them a call. Much to my surprise Rico JR himself answered the phone! We talked about this and that for a while - mostly gear, guitars, etc - the usual stuff we all discuss. After the normal topics had gotten out of the way, I told him I was interested in getting my hands on one of the Hybrid Vixens. He told me he was discontinuing the line, to focus more on the Handmade stuff & that he was blowing the remaining Hybrids out! The price he gave me was downright shocking! Rico JR is a stand up guy and has been a pleasure to deal with. He is very accomodating and easy going. If you have ever thought about getting a Rico Hybrid - NOW is the time to do so! He has a few left in Black, Gun Metal & Metallic Blood Red. You will be shocked at the quote you receive! He sets the guitar up to the tuning of your choice & with your preferred string gauge as well. My Vixen should be here next week and it is coming with all kinds of case candy - Hardshell Case, Certificate of Authenticity, Rico JR Guitars T-Shirt and a Guitar Tool Kit! I cannot wait for this guitar to show up at my door! If it is anything like I have heard and read - it will smoke any guitar I have touched!
