My favorite is 650 D. The reason is simple - that's the only one i have. ;) Seriously, though, it's easiest to play from all guitars i ever owned. And i like its look, too.

I like the 650 series too and I think I will try to get one of them. They are great soloing guitars!

I only have 2 RICs,so it has to be the 370-12 RM.
KWIKN, I would have taken it to the 75th.

My Favorite will always be my 4001C64 (that's why I bought it). And if I will need to buy an electric guitar, it would be the Jetglo 350, but that will remain just a dream for now...
4001C64, no other...

My favorite Ric will always be the 360/12 string.  Doesn't matter whether it has toasters or high gains installed at the moment.  I reserve the option to change my mind on that last detail some time in the future, however.  I have a while to wait before my Ric arrives.

My favorite RIC bass is the 4001V63.  It was the first brand new bass I ever purchased so I guess it has special meaning.  My favorite RIC guitar would be the 660.  I like the neck width better on the model than I do on the 300 series.  Not to mention the design is elegant.  I can stare at it just as much as play it. 

This doesn't mean I don't like the other models I own, just these stand out as my favorite models.

My favorite model as a bass player would probably the 4005. I've always thought they were cool, well before I ever knew what they cost or any of that. I just saw one in a magazine and thought it was great. I barely even played the instrument at that point.
Of the ones I have played, my favorite is probably my new 4003. I love my old 77 4001 to death, and I'll never ever get rid of it. But the new 4003s are some excellent instruments.

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

I have never played a Ric guitar but, I can tell you my favorite bass of all time is my 4001. It is a 74' Fireglo, which I restored a while back with the help of some of the guys on this very forum.My thanks to Dane, David and Joey. :)

Mine would be the one I have on order which hasn't come in yet - a 360/12C63.  I've always wanted a 360/12 like Harrison's.  Hopefully one day soon, I'll get the call it's in.

I'll say it.  Mine is the 330/6.  I've had 330/6's, 360/6's, 660/6's, and 660/12's.  I love the feel of the 330/6. 

I only hope the incoming 620/12 can be mentioned in the same sentence.  Time will tell.

I'm partial to my old '70 360-12 with slanted frets. I bought it from a factory rep in 1971.
