Retrovibe only did that one for a short while(maybe they still do a 4). Yeah, it's not a direct rip-off, body is actually different on both horns and the headstock is Fender-style. And the neck is bolt on. I'm totally over neck-thru design, I've got electronics that provide much better "endless sustain" than that shit.Are Retrovibes now considered Chickenbackers? I thought they were inspired by Ric, not direct knockoffs.
As far as pass me Meshuggah for mecornflakes, I’m unfamiliar (too deathy for me I guess) but I always thought Warwick Dolphin basses looked comfy.
It's funny, the Retrovibe is the one I've been playing the most. Few months ago I sat in with a friends group for a gig and the first the drummer(my bud) said was "wow, sweet Ric!"
The Dolphin looks nice but I've never played a Warwick I could get even a micro-boner for.
