Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

Congrats on the big two O! I've met some fabulous friends because of this site.

...and the site shares my birthday, apparently. :lol:

I have already posted a congratulations message to Peter and Gil on Facebook, but I will also add a quick word here as well.

40,000 items that are publically searchable in the register too! Quite an achievement!

All the best from my corner of Canada.

Congrats, Peter. I was a member from the very beginning, but had to recreate my profile at some point, maybe due to a crash or something. I have never posted very much but have learned a lot over the years and registered most of my Rics. Cheers.

I found it about 6 months after it was formed. I have no recollection of that time, even though I was young (in college). I think I had just first purchased my first Rickenbacker, a 360/12CW. Wish I still had it, but am glad I still have the forum!

I was a casual viewer of the website Rickenbacker Planet (bought my first Rickenabcker, a 360/12 MG through it, in fact), and when it went away I migrated over here and have been here since. 8)

Good for you, Peter. The RRF has proven to be a very valuable source in my ongoing "RIC Education".
I've learned a lot, and been entertained in the process. And it's FREE!
Many thanks and continued success. This site is a treasure.

I was in college when I joined, too! Couldn't afford a Rickenbacker yet, but I was happy to read up on them in the meantime.

Didn't realize at the time how new the forum was!

Congratulations once again, Peter!

I discovered the forum in 2007 through Dale Fortune; I'd sent Dale a guitar for mods a month or so before, and Dale left me a phone message asking if I was going to be at SCARF.

I didn't know what that was, and Dale mentioned the Rick Resource Forum, so I joined and asked about SCARF. Joey got back to me right away, and I showed up with my then-roommate Stacy, who was popular... being female, cute, friendly, and interested in music, combine for a great icebreaker-who knew? :lol:

I've made a lot of friends here over the past thirteen years (this week, of this month). It's been a great ride. Looking forward to the pandemic's passing so we can all get back to meeting up playing music again!
There is no reason to ever be bored.

...why yes, I suppose I do have a double bound guitar fetish...

"Uh, I like the double bounds. . . ."

Congratulations to Peter for a Happy 20 years!

Happy 20 Years, RRF! In late November, I'll have been aware and a member of this site for 13 years. Thanks to all the people who I've made friends with over the years, and all the fun I've had at the SoCal meetups I attended back in the day. These days, I've got three Rics in my stable.

Although I don't post like I used to 1/64th of the amount that I did up to five years ago, I still check in every now and again, as there is a treasure trove of wonderful and knowledgeable information about some of the finest electric guitars out there.
