    Didn't see any of those on Reverb. I guess i could always have the pickup covers engraved if I wanted to really get into it.

    My bad Bones. It's on ebay & it's a Firebird cover & plate. Too much $$$ IMO.

    Guy in my band has a Chickenbacker (Chinese Rickenbacker!) and to be fair after a proper set up it’s pretty decent.

    When you consider how much an actual Ricky costs, and the fact that they are appallingly made guitars with massive design flaws, you’d have to be pretty crazy to buy the real thing for upwards of £2k

    I see. The LPs had engraving on the pickup covers too, I think the "VIN" number and the "1960"
