  1. I certainly agree that the RD is under rated, mine is an 81 that I got new in 82 it also has the moog electronics, it used to be my main player until about 10 years ago I don't want it to get damaged, so my mim Jazz bass is my main player now.
  2. this should show you what I am talking about
  3. Has anyone seen the new 3 point bridges for the 2015 models? it appears to be a more substantial bridge, I wonder if we will be able to retrofit it on our existing instruments.

    yeah the EB4 mudbucker had 4 coils, one around each pole piece, it would be interesting to hear what it sounded like.

    what is really interesting is that whoever did the mods took the time to take out the EB4 humbucker for what appears to be a correct EB3 humbucker
  6. you know, I played a regular finish sg bass and a faded sg bass, I think I like the faded much better, it felt better in my hands and I liked the tone better, it's hard describe because the difference were subtle.
  7. I am looking for fireglo, my local Sam ash had one in Jetglo and one in natural, both nice but not what I am wanting, which is fine, it will take a few months to have my funds ready.
  8. I went to my local Sam Ash yesterday, I played a 2013 EB bass and a 2014 faded SG bass in fireburst, the EB bass is marked down to $699 and the SG bass is $749, I almost dipped into my Rickenbacker fund to buy one of them, I really liked the EB, it was light and had good tone but I am jonesing for a Ric, so I must be diligent.
  9. curse you for giving me GAS !!!!!!!
  10. you just can't look at it as being underwater or not. do you like it? then it was a good deal if you plan on playing it keep it and play the heck out of it.
  11. you guys would probably think I'm crazy, but I still have the same strings from the factory when I got my 50s tribute in December of 2010 and the guitar has been gigged once.
  12. did someone say Rd Artist? 1981 Rd artist
  13. a torti pick guard would look so good on that bass.
