Yeah those Rics don't come cheap. Sam Ash usually sells them for around $1,950. What Ric finish are you liking at this time? My local Sam Ash has a SG Spl. Fireburst in stock also.

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.

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.

 

I totally agree with you. The less glossed body seems to have better overall harmonics. They also seem to tune better. In this case, I do believe cost's less is better.

I kinda' like the Fiery Red Heads. [thumbup]

I lean towards "fiery redheads myself". I was s tame auburn in my youth (more grey now); but, my daughter got the fiery red and the temper to match. That being said, your Reba is activating my GAS, I would need to sell some other toys to get that. Then I would need to sell the Rickenbacker to finance the lawyer after my wife divorces me. On top of that, it would be another bass I would be afraid to take out in public for fear of chipping or scratching it. My Rivoli never leaves the house.
