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

Not the one you post, as that is a Cii, right?

Right, that's a Cii.

Here are some pics. You can see that depending of the lighting, flash, angle, etc, the Ruby color varies alot.
As JH put it, the flatter the surface of the guitar, the more Burgundy-ish the Ruby color will seem.

Same guitar as in pic above at different camera position.

Cool poster at the TecAmp booth. I thought it was just some model posing with a 4001 for the poster. Nope, that's bassist Linda Blend of the band, Lejana on the poster. When I realized she was nearby, I spoke to her and she asked if I'd like a poster and Gary quickly hands me a Sharpie and says, "Here, make her sign it!" Gary got one also. Linda was not just cute, she was cool too! 8)

Ruby, how nice! I love the look of the 381 and 330. For some reason, the large white pickguard of the 4003 distracts the eye from the Ruby. Probably angle and lighting.

Me likey!

Here are the pictures I took today.

Set #1

Those were not static pictures, but active musicians on each screen (all playing the same song, thankfully! :roll: ) ... I wasn't sure whether it was prerecorded or a live feed.
