Thanks for the posts! Yes,I thought so too. I really regretted selling the R9 I used to own and didn't think I would ever be able to get another one. My old one was a 96 with tiger stripped flametop. This 2011 doesn't show much flame but it is hard to see from the photo.

Congrats! Glad you got a Les Paul again. I would never part with my 95 standard.

Thanks! I really like it. One surprise was that it has a gloss finish instead of the VOS.

That looks ace. I've been after another Les Paul after obsessing over a Faded Studio I tried locally.

Thanks! FYI These guitars are for sale at Guitar Center now if anyone is interested. That Nocaster is really sweet but I wanted the Les Paul more.



Thought about trading the Series on too but I figured Guitar Center probably wouldn't take it and I have to keep at least one extra guitar plus I'll go into withdrawal if I don't have some kinds Rickenbacker shaped item.

I take it you've already sold that lovely silver DeArmond? Don't remember seeing that one go.

Nice LP. Too bad about the nocaster....between that and the lp most of your tonal bases would be covered.

Yeah,I sold the Dearmond locally.I had to sell everyting to make it posible to buy the R9.Well some of them I didn't sell,I just returned them(the Cresttwood and the Melody Maker).







The only guitar I kept was the Series 10 because I knew Guitar Center wouldn't buy it (now that they are back in Rickenbacker's good graces).

It's just as well. I do need at least one other guitar and I have to admit my Rickenbacker fetish will never go away. A "3/4 Rickenbacker" like John Lennon's was my dream guitar since I was 10 and read pop music magazine that described John's guitar that way(not by the model number 325). I don't really want a 325 anymore,they are too expensive,too small and too hard to play.Still,I love how they look.The Series 10 a pretty good facsimile despite the fact that it has a bolt in neck(The neck is set in but secured by bolts) and is a solidbody guitar. The fake toaster pickups actually more jangly than real ones,lol.
