More from the Tundra Music guitar swap event this weekend in Toronto…
Check out this lovely Rickenback 660…er…620…er…650? F*ck I am bad with model names for anything besides Fender, Gibson, Epi and Martin! :\
Oh well…I know the shape of its upper “horn” is called a the “Cresting Wave”, and I think those are only found on Ricky 600 series solid-bodies. But, per my usual caveat, please don’t quote me on this because it’s only my understanding, and I probably got it from reading guitar book or magazine a decade or more ago and I may be incredibly wrong! It’s just safer for you not to quote me… :D
Anyhoo: this Ric had the nicest figuring I have seen on any Mapleglo Ricky ever. And how ‘bout that neck through body and checker board binding on the top? Nice, ain’t it! Even my cousin who really does not like Rics had to admit that this one looked great, and (more importantly for him..) sounded great!
They were asking $1,800 for it and I think that was a very reasonable deal. Due to my extreme poverty at the moment, I did NOT buy it… :(
