You're going to love Dan. He is one of the nicest guys I've met since moving to Denver and is a big Ric fan as well as a great (and creative) bassist. He's the only other person besides me to play my Red/white trim 4003/5 but I'll be sure to bring it so others can experience it too. I'm not sure yet if I'll bring all three of my Ric basses or just the 5-string and one FL--I lean towards the 4001FL as it is more of an oddity. It's also been a long time since I've seen Jeff so it will be cool to see what he's been up to, he is a wonderful person to talk to as well. I will put the word out to those I know a little more personally here in the Denver area.

What's that, a 12-hour drive or so? It's too bad if you can't make it out, but that is a bit of a long drive after all. You should try to visit Premier Bass Guitars someday. It's truly amazing in terms of bringing a wide and high quality selection of bass gear together in one place, and Dan will bend over backward to help you find what you're after (whether he can sell it to you or not).
