1 DCBirdMan 2 weeks ago Well the first Rick 650, the one that started it all, is off shedding ugly Montezuma Brown finish for kool Cardinal Red. The 2nd later era 650 is the one converted to 12 with the whitest maple board anywhere. The newest is a nice 10 old Fireglo one where the board must have been stained down from white to yellow. Still this looks to be a winner. I always change them over to traditional white logos and loose the ugly metal guard for Pickguardian plastic, plus I prefer just master tone and volume setup anyway.
