..but in the end it will make me the owner of one of THESE! I wanted to own a Rickenbacker 330 from the days as a child when seeing Wally Palmar of the Romantics and Wendy Melvoin of the Revolution toting them. Add to the fact that I'm a big Paul Weller fan and you know where I'm coming from. Now Rickies here in the Netherlands are anything BUT commonplace and the waiting list for retailers is two years, they also aren't very cheap either but after having played a very nice mapleglo example recently I decided that there's no use fighting against GAS I had since childhood. So today I went into a store of which I knew carries Rickies and asked the manager if I could order a 330 in Jet-glo, he told me that he ordered one last year and it was due to come in, and when it does I can make a down payment on it and pay the rest of the money as it comes. This will take a long time but when I finish I know I'll have THAT guitar, the one I wanted for so long. "In the city there's a lot of things I wanna say to you..."
