I'd be interested to see a side-by-side compare of Dark Cherry Metallic (75th Ann.) to the new Ruby.

Aw, Joey! Ya gotta get a flash or some better light going there. Those pics are too dark to really see the finish. Thanks for posting 'em though!

The 381 pic looks close to what it looks like. The Cii pic came out a bit dark. The DCM's have a purple-ish look in comparison.
CJ, the camera phone flash washes it out. Gary and I will have better pics from regular cameras later.

Sweet! A nice solid alternative to Fireglo for the modern line. It's tempting to order one... we'll see. I need another Ric bass like a bullet in the head.

Is that like the new factory finish Kira? PW had talked about how he mixed before on here somewhere.

I can't quote Paul on that, but I suspect there's some cross-pollination there. However, John Hall told me this looks like the new factory Ruby.

Now why would anyone need bullets in their head??? Everyone could use a new Rick though...
