Wow, thanks John.johnhall wrote:Rickenbacker at Music China, Shanghai, October 2011, along with Parson's and Shinseido's leaders.
Wouldn't you know it - this was the first year I missed Music China. Well, congrats to Parsons! I just had one of my staff call both the Beijing and Shanghai stores (this is really exciting for me!). Alas, nobody knew anything about Rickenbacker (Shanghai asked if it was a piano brand). It is likely because it is still so new.
Best wishes on your success! You're in a "different" market now!
By the way, I have some pics somewhere of my midnight blue 2005 660/12 (probably the first in China back then) resting on my (matching) sonic blue 2005 Victory Kingpin motorcycle (definitely the first in China), in various venues around town (Great Wall, Tiananmen, etc). I'll post them when I find them.
