When I posted about my first Rickenbacker (660 Fireglo) I mentioned that I never lived near a shop that had Ricks in stock. Well, just about a week ago I found that my local shop had a few just come in: 620s in various colors, a Liverpool model and some 4003 basses. I wanted to try the high gain single coils to see if I liked them as much as the Toasters, and found that I actually liked them more. Obviously the neck was slimmer, but really very comfortable; nowhere near the toothpick-like thinness I had read about. A very good neck, actually. I really, REALLY liked it, and it had that crystal-clear clean sound that I love so much. It was different enough from the 660 to justify getting it, but I have enough guitars already. "I'll check the price, it's probably too expensive," I thought to myself, "so that's why I won't get it." The sales guy said he couldn't go too low since they are hard to get in stock... How about $1200? Sigh... ...Sold!
