    Wanted one of these classic machines since I saw McCartney play live on "All You Need is Love" back in the summer of '67. Thank you Mark Chapman!

    Back to the future

    A Rickenbacker was my first bass...some 35 years ago. In all the trades, giveaways and sales I've made throughout the years it somehow became a casualty. Now that I've picked up the bass again...it seemed like a logical and sentimental re-addition to my collection. Also, the stereo feature is very useful. As with most Ricks, it plays very fast, is great in the higher registers ( plays more easily than many other basses past the 12th fret ) and is consistent and smooth; it has a different sound that can, without a lot of tweaking, cut through a lot of mixes.
    That being said it arrived quickly, exactly as spec'ed and was set up perfectly. The action and intonation were on point. But, from Sweetwater, I have come to expect nothing less. Their seamless sales/customer service and follow up makes things easy. They are the benchmark of the industry in that respect. I buy a lot of instruments and equipment. With the exception of certain boutique and vintage gear they might not handle Sweetwater is always my 'go to' vendor. Their people put the customer first and they don't posture ( if they don't know something they tell you and make every effort to find out ). If there's a problem or a delay they are up front and get to you first...no need for constant calls or emails wondering about the status of your order. Usually, they improve upon the time frame for special or out of stock orders; this tells you a lot as it means that they have excellent relationships with their suppliers. A big plus. They are one of the few companies where I've gone out of my way to contact upper management to express my appreciation for how well every employee, to a person, has met or exceeded my expectations. I don't know any of them personally but while professional, quality and efficient service should be SOP they go beyond well that...therefore, I give credit where credit is due. It's especially nice to know that while I do buy frequently I'm hardly a 'whale' which means I know they're treating everyone as if they were. Other companies have a lot to learn from them as far as how to do business.
    Thanks guys,
    Rob S.
