Lovely New Addition

After watching this video some months ago, I fell in love with the Fireglow Ric Bass, so Ive finally got one (see pic below)  ;D

Hi Todd,Ive used Fender Basses (and I have  a Warwick) and this feels very different, the neck is slimmer and longer and the strings are a touch closer together, but I absolutely love it, I think it looks like the nicest Bass ever made (but Im biased), of course it have the famous Ric clang if you set it right or it can sound like it did on certain Beatle tracks like Rain.
I know I will always own this and will never sell it, its a keeper.
Chris Squire of Yes has always used a Ric and he gets that trebly growl (mine can do that) of his which Ive always loved. Mine is a 4003 not 4001 which Pauls was, mine has the big sharktooth position markers, Pauls has dots.

That's lovely - really nice.

I have a 6-string Ric and a 12-string Ric - both Fireglo, so I need a bass like that to complete the collection  ;D

Actually, I used to play in a band where the bass player had one like that - looked very good on stage with that on one side and my 12-string fireglo on the other

This 360-12 sounds so good hooked up to the AC30!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm currently learning George's part in You Can't Do That.  This video has been most helpful...

Well folks Im sorry to have to say, Ive sold the Ric, it was so heavy I knew I wouldnt play gigs with it and it was too expensive to be an ornament so it just had to go, maybe I could find a lighter one...

Heres my latest (since selling the Ric) its new but its been made to look old by Fender, its called a 'road worn' Jazz bass, identical to the 50's model with nitro paint in Fiesta red, note the old look, missing paint etc  ha2ha

Its wonderful to play and sounds very vintage

Nice guitar, Kev.  I'm a fan of the "road-worn" series.  It gives these guitars character.

By the way, I bought one of these a couple of months ago...
