Help! Bad GAS attack
I really shouldn't be looking for guitars - next time somebody ask me to help I'll have to say no.
I've always just assumed that Rickenbackers were out of the question - but then I found this - approx $2000 here in Norway (just about the same price as a American Standard Strat..)
Please tell me I can't afford it!! Please tell me I don't need it! What shall I do - is there a cure?
(I will have to call my bank one of these days to tell them how much I need for the apartement I've just bought - No! don't even think of it! :roll: )
Sweeeet! Get it!
Oh, sorry, that didn't help ...

I'd like to help, but since I just picked up a GT-8 I have absolutely no need for, I'm just not the one to do it . . .
In all seriousness, though, that's a great looking axe, and a very good price.

Thanks guys - I knew I could count on you - or wait... :-)
I don't even have a wife to answer to anymore ...
Go get it & bring it home right now! :D
Glad I could help! :mrgreen: :wink:

darn you Lars. in the back of my mind I have been thinking about Richenbackers. maybe I have been listening to Tom Petty ...now you have fueled the fire. I have GAS.
cool guitar. that black color is classic.
Don't buy it, NOT.
You don't need it, NOT.
You have too many guitars already, NOT.
You can only play one at a time...SO?
Sorry, guess I'm not much help, either. :twisted:

Rick's sound really muddy. If your gonna get one get a 12 string. Don't buy this one.
Congrats Lars! Nice guitar!
Go ahead! 8)

LOL, ROTFL, LMAO etc :-D
TrueG: You serious now? With humbuckers it wont sound like a strat, I know - but I can't be THAT bad? Do you have first hand experience?
And seriously - I kinda have a faint hope that it is true...
Nuno - :-D
I've been trying to help you all day...by not posting anything. :wink:
That is one beautiful, collectible guitar. I've never heard of a Rickenbacker being "muddy" sounding. Maybe someone really is trying to help you! :lol: I have a Ric bass that's not even muddy sounding! I've always heard the guitars described as "jangly" (which is also what I hear on record). Hmmm...Well, I'm sure you'll try it before you buy it...right???
Good luck, congrats, or something like that...! :D
Love and Peace or Else,
Thank you musica - appreciated your help
From my bass playing brother I've been told that bass players often have a hate/love thing with Rickenbacker basses. Why is it you like yours?
Try before I buy :shock: why is that? I know I want that guitar :lol:
Seriously - it is kinda strange. Last week I bought a new apartment for me and my kids. Something like 300 000$, or between 5-6 of my current yearly salary. I spendt max 5 minutes in the appartement before I made a decision that I wanted to buy it. I can easily spend twice a much time going to a shop to save $2,5 in groceries. Rational? I don't think so
And - of course the RIckenbackers do not have humbuckers - I dunno where that came from
And - TrueG - yes I will actually consider a 12 string :shock:
- EDIT: 2-3 years waiting list? :shock: Anyone out there going to norway soon?
nice, i say feed the beast (gas)
