I've watched a lot of the short history vids. FiveWattWorld is pretty cool.
One of my favourite channels.
The GAS is real...
Great video, do like his stuff for the specifics.
Always loved the look of Rick basses and the sound. It's more mid range than a typical bass in my opinion.
As much as I love the MM Stingray basses, I think I want the Rick more in fireglo with hi gain toaster pickups...
I used to think a Rick was the coolest looking bass ever..kinda still do.
And if I never learn to play one, I'd still like to have one in my collection.
Same. Love them in JetGlo particularly.
I used to be an owner. Wish I still had it. Nevertheless, this video always cracks me up (and, there's a good bit of truth to it.).
Still the coolest looking bass ever.
I've never owned one, never even played one I don't think.
I did build the 400X kit that thefretwire used to offer. I did upgrade the bridge to an Allparts Ric lookalike. I think that's the only change I made.
Painted it gloss black.
Interesting video, but… Ford Rambler Coupe?!? Ford??? Then he talks about how we remember things wrong, and calls it a “Ford Rambler” again!!!
Breathe… breathe… that’s good… like that… ahhhh…
I love Dave! LOLOL
Hasn't he heard the song "Beep Beep" ?
Here's the follow up livestream. There is usually discussion of the original video but it is not limited to that.
Someone should let him know that a rest mounted above the strings is indeed a "finger rest", but below the strings it's a "tug bar".
I used to have one and I miss it but nothing beats a P.
I had the honor of completely cleaning the snot out of a friend's late 80s 4003S, pretty rare color combo from what I understand.
The nut was replaced with one ordered from Ric and filed correctly.
The fretboard had a couple chips drop filled with CA and polished, frets dressed, etc.
The surround for the bridge pickup was all rusted, so that got blasted and re powder coated.
The switch was frozen, the pots were scratchy, it looked like the top of the guitar was used as a charcuterie board.
All the chips/battle scars were left as is, but now he can play his bass without worrying about tetanus.
Can't wait to watch this one later...I really enjoy his videos.
However...I really want a Rick bass, but the prices even used are something I can never justify.
That video is going to set my GAS off something fierce.
I may end up ordering the sub-$300 Harley Benton knock off before the video is over, then start modding the heck out of it.
