And Bass players dont know what to do with G-strings and thongs?

Maybe thats why I am a poor bass player
Can't say I've ever tried wearin' 'em...

Looks like Aussie ( and Kiwi) Ric players/Owners are an uncommunicative bunch

I sat (uncomfortably ) on the fence being a Kiwi Citizen but resident in Oz for the last 30 years

Hi guys, Gold Coast calling! Just acquired my first Ric - 2011 4003 Jetglow. Rawr.

I want to get some bits & pieces - hipshot bridge, trebel bezel, black pickguard - but can only find vendors online who sell one item but not the others. Im trying to avoid racking up multiple shipping charges @ about $30 a throw. Tried Amazon but when I go to order it tells me they wont ship to Australia.

Any suggestions where I can pick these things up at a reasonable price in the one shipment?

Yeah, Chris Clayton at Pick of the Ricks is a great guy. I know there are restrictions on selling instruments (being in the US he can't sell outside North America maybe South Am too?), but I think parts are OK. I've bought from him, but back when I was in the US.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Thanks!

Looked at POTR, but they don't sell hipshot bridges or black pickguards for 4003's, just the treble bezel. At the moment I'll have to order all three items from 3 separate suppliers and pay 3 separate shipping costs, each about AUD$30 so $90 all up on an order that will be about $160. I was hoping to also get someone who does DR strings but thats not so important.

Hi Folks,

I just found the Aussie Chapter after a few years on the RRF. It's interesting what you don't know if you don't look. Mostly a lurker, but pop my head up from time to time. I'm located near Gosford on the Central Coast.
