I guess it's a Flambeau/Lowden Rick? Am I right? I also have one dating from 1983 and it's been a great workhorse guitar. I've done 100's of gigs with it, has a good sound and it never let me down once. I've been toying with the idea of selling mine having acquired a new wide necked Lakewood M-18 which feels like it's been made for me personally and which I cannot put dow. The trouble is feel like I'm being unfaithful to my trusty old Flambeau/Lowden if it is possible to be unfaithful to a guitar! If I do sell it it will only be to a good home...so if any "catters are interested....!
Peace to all,
