Don't want to offend all you bass players, but wouldn't that get a bit boring? After you learn all the riffs, you still don't have a rhythm guitar to straighten out with the right beat...

LOL!

Y'mean like when the bass player comes back in after the solo with the beat turned around on the Alman Brother's "Might Be Your Man?"
;-)

Yep, they're the time keepers alright!

My 1967 vintage 365. Or my 700 Comstock acoustic. It's a hard choice.... I love them both, and play them the most of all my Rics.

I've got to go with my 660/12. That great Ric sound with a wider neck!

This would be a very hard choice for me. I have often thought about a similar question: what if you would wake up some day and suddenly decide to leave your home, job and friends for a new life somewhere else and were only to take the things with you, that you can carry on your back?

Well, I´d take some clothes, my Apple Powerbook and one of my Ricks. But which?

My favorite one is the 325V59 which also was my first Rickenbacker. But the one I play most is my 650A Atlantis. I just could not decide. So I guess I will never start a new life. It seems I will have to do with the one I am living ;-) ...

Would have to be a 1966-67 370/12 BYRD. If not, just my modded 360/12 Carl Wilson.

Are we talking of the guitars we already have or any Ricky? Right now I only have a 330 6 fireglo that I dearly love but if I had my pick of ANY Rickenbacker I would have to pick the 325V59 mapleglo. If it was good enough for my musical hero John then it's good enough for me. Plus, when I'm not practicing chord progressions (I'm a beginner) then I can amuse myself by admiring the gleam of the wood in the desert island sunshine.
