Let's see the rest of it :lol:


Actually... precedes the telecaster... the '51 "NoCaster" does not have the Telecaster insignia on its headstock... It falls between the '50 Broadcaster and '52 Telecaster. I know this may sound picky, but I'm a big time Fenderphile




Nice.... reminds me of the '51 bass I once owned. I Also had a '64 Jazz bass, Bass VI and a Ampeg SVT amp.

-- I've found the Newton bars and stems to be very solid... like Fenders and Ampegs.

Is the carbon on the ritchey stem aesthetic or stuctural?

Read Kuiper's post on the first page...

It's for aesthetics, just a normal WCS stem wrapped in CF....
This is my Bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me, my bike is useless. Without my bike, I am useless.

Actually no Ritchey claim it´s for stiffness and is structural. A 5 gram weightpenalty compared to the 4 axis alu and 300% stiffer. This had made me order as I like to push and pull.

http://www.ritcheylogic.com/web/Ritchey ... 23585.html check it out

BDAGhisallo They are out and availiable everywhere (In Europe anyway). Even on ebay and at my LBS.

BTW I´m going to try and remove the larger Ritchey decals. Sanding and relaquering. Unless Rich tells us the decals are on top of the clear coat? Thus making it easy?
