Looks like a great time was had by all! Sorry I couldn't make it, but family commitments and Monday morning work conspired against me. Next time for sure!

That and the presence of a '64 4001S perhaps had us all a little off center! :lol:

Sounds like you guys had a blast. It seems like there were 3 reissue basses (two 4001V63s and a CS with pickguard replaced), two modern basses (both 4003), three vintage basses (Ronbo's 1999, K-Teed's 21-fretter and JPS' 73 4001), one Ric guitar (JPS' '66 330) and one non-Ric guitar (modern Epi Casino). If I missed anything, tell me. Hope to meet you one day, Gil. Seems like you get along great with the Ohio guys :mrgreen:

Looks like it was a great time!

So, what kind of plane? Whose is it?

I have NO idea what to do with those skinny stringed things... I'm just a bass player...

Close, Jake, but no cigar! :mrgreen:
There were no modern 4003's (beside the 3 V63's), the CS isn't "official", though it's been played by the man himself, there is a 21 fretter, but it's not mine, there are 3 '60's basses

Exactly. I think we all had to pry it out of the other guy's hands to try it out. Great bass, Ronbo.

Oh I didn't forget, it was a conscious decision! :mrgreen: I was having too much fun. :D

Great photos, especially, of the plane ride. :shock: 8)

'67 330, Jake. :wink: But, close enough to '66 given it is a March baby. 8)
