Wasn't there a dealer in Haymarket or Gainseville area? I remember going into a nice shop there in the early 2010s.

The shop (Classic Axe Guitar Gallery) has been gone for about 6-7 years now. The owner moved to Texas and is now retired. My wife used to manage the store from 2006-2010.

Chuck Levin's is still a dealer, but I think Matt Baker who owns Action Music in Falls Church is still a dealer...he had two 4005XC basses last year.

well, I was looking at the new Rickenbacker web site and it seems to be up and running with a listing of dealers... 3 in MD and 1 in VA. Might be making a phone call soon.

Wow, none in Ohio. No wonder I don't see them anymore at my local Sam Ash.

Sam Ash is still a dealer - they just don’t have the individual stores listed at this time. Same for Guitar Center.

I can only presume the Rosetti price here in the UK is very, very, VERY wrong if you guys in the states are getting told about $4K on your pre-orders...

A dealer here ive used before thinks based on the RRP hes been quoted by the distributor that the UK price will be £5999/£6299.

If thats true im totally out of buying one, that's crazy money.
