Where I am,in Virginia,necks bow in the winter and straighten in the summer.I need to get a humidifier fot the winter months.1 bass is'nt to bad but I have 8,not all Ricks but still it is a major pain.Finished guitars,as opposed to natural,react less to changes in humidity,but they do react.

I live in Denver and my '07 4003jg needed some serious neck work after a few months of living with no humidity!

Two years later, it's rock solid and hasn't budged since I had the guys at Colfax Guitars re-set it up. (I'm not talented enough to try!)

I didn't know Colfax Guitars dealt with Rics, they seemed like a specialty shop. Good to know though.

They have rebuilt rics and are pretty familiar with the dual truss rods and Denver's lack of humidity. Good guys who completely guarantee their work.

Yeah I thought Rockley in Lakewood and the store way up north in Broomfield? were the only Ric shows in town? Where is Colfax Guitar? (besides being on Colfax, it's a lonnnng street.)

What about humidity less than 30%? I'm looking at that in my near future.


While over 30% is better, Rickenbackers are made in California... where it's frequently very dry in the summer. It'll probably be okay.

I believe the factory is humidified.

If you put your basses in a room with a humidifier and use a humidistat to monitor the humidity then you will be fine. This year in Denver we are getting plenty of rain. My basement is running 40% to 50% without any intervention on my part. In the winter I run 2 humidifiers down there.

My room's humidity is about 40%, which according to Rick's manual should be fine.
The ferrules come a bit loose though......and on the back of my 4003's you see a clear groove where the wings meet the neck.

you reckon it's still too dry??
