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: )

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...

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.

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.

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

lars,

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,
CC

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?

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...
