Ruby Hits The UK

Postby (SoundAffectsMusic) » Sat May 12, 2012 7:06 am

Just got our first bunch of Ruby basses in, so I thought I'd share some pictures. Before anyone asks, all sold I'm afraid.

And the spookiest thing happened. A older couple came in yesterday and the gentleman was looking for a shorter scale bass as he was getting a bit arthritic and struggling with his Fender. We showed him some Hofner basses, and his wife said: " I don't suppose you have any in ruby do you as its a present for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary.....nobody has ever asked me for a Ruby guitar before and this was on the day our first Ruby basses arrived!

Cheers
Tim

A heart-warming story. For those looking for one I guess it is goodbye Ruby Tuesday for now. Kira will have to wait for her Ruby bass, unless ...

Well, the 330s have arrived now - could't resist a few pics of them together before they get split up and go to their new homes......

Great pics Tim! And nice to see another family grouping before they head their separate ways. :D

The Fireglo shading on the C63s looks darker than the previous versions - would you say that's true "in the flesh" or is it a trick of the light?

It is quite red/dark - although maybe its an illusion as they are set against the Ruby. Let me take another peek.....back in a mo

.....nope - they are deffo darker :-)
