It never occurred to me to take pictures. Though there were only 4 of us there, we had a nice collection of basses!

Let's see:

3 - 4001V63's
1 - 4004 Cheyenne
1 - 4004 Laredo
1 - 4004 LK
1 - '73 4001
1 - '69 4001

No kidding ?? RIO had the esteemed head of the RRF Rickenbacker Photography sector on hand and there were no cameras ?? :lol: :roll: Everybody must have been too busy test-driving the Ric ensemble !!

(I should talk --- I misplaced my little camera at the NAMM show :( :cry: )

Yeah, that's it. We were having too much fun to even notice there were no cameras around. :mrgreen:

I actually thought about taking a weekend road trip. But glad I didn't given the weather. I'll just have to wait for a the larger one close by.

Brian, wish I'd checked this forum on Saturday. I could have picked you up very easily..... :(

I thought of that on the drive home. We should have had a picture of the three of us manhandling the '68 neck. :lol:

Shari is the offical confluence photographer. If she wasn't there then Jeff won't do it.
