That's why I bought my two Ricks second hand.

Over two years from your question, what about this guitar ?
Do you still own it ?

I use a Line 6 FloorPod with a Laney LV 100 amp on stage.
And the FloorPod in studio sessions.

I think my next one will be a 620.
Not easy to find one in France...

Well, I own two Ricks.
My old 1981 4001 Fireglo, that is used by our bass player in "Nel & les Touristes" (
and my 1991 350 mapleglo.
This guitar is amazing.
I'm in love with this one...

Hello everybody, here !

This is my first post. Sorry for my English ===> I'm French...
Here is the story for the TearDrop Rick : during the very early seventies, one of the first independant studios was created, near Paris, at Hérouville. The Studio Chateau D'Hérouville. Many musicians recorded there. Bill Wyman, David Bowie, Elton John, The Bee Gees, etc... I can't tell here the whole story.
I was searching the web for a second hand Rick and found one, a 360 walnut. I contacted by e-mail the guy who was selling this guitar. He told me I was late and the Rick was already sold. But he told me it came from Chateau D'Hérouville collection, (he was the engineer) and sent me few pics of other Ricks. And I saw that incredible TearDrop.
He explained me later that he made TWO Ricks with ONE...
He owned a 362/12 (I'm not sure of the model, but this is one with two necks). He knew a very good luthier and told him he'd like to have a TearDrop Rick. And that was done... The result was a 12-string custom and this incredible TearDrop.
He visited the Rick factory in the US and bought knobs and other pieces to finish it.
This very unique model is for sale.
Still seaching the internet for a Rick, I think I found one today, a 1991 350 full size (24 fret) mapleglo, (not the 3/4 V63 model) with metal parts in black color, in very good condition. I hope I'll get it !
Have a nice day !
