I recently bought a 4003S on Ebay which has a very odd TRC. The small white words 'made in the USA' appear upside down on the black background. There is no model number.

The 'Rickenbacker' lettering is raised as you would expect and compared to my other Ric TRCs is genuine, as is the bass itself.

My question, should any of the Ric staff be reading this, is if I send this TRC back to RIC can I get it exchanged for a new one?

Thanks
Alansan

This likely wouldn't have had the model number so that isn't an issue and I've seen the "Made in USA" like that as well, so not a problem. However, there are some other details that give counterfeit plates away and we'll be able to determine if it's genuine quite easily.

Thanks for replying in person Mr. Hall.

Do I send it directly to the factory address listed in the corporate section of the site?

Impeccable service, as always, yet it never fails to impress me.
