What do you think a fair reserve price on this is? Is a Ric bridge a direct replacement on this one?

nice. yes, any replacement RIC bridge will work. I prefer the hipshot replacement as the adjustments on it are much easier, but it is pricier. if you prefer the stock look and get it, I may still have a spare tail in my parts bucket... since it looks like the tail is all it really needs to be playable, this one could go 350-400 easily. depends on who's watching.

depends on how much the seller watches eBay. if I was a avid ebay watcher... oh wait... If the seller is an avid ebay watcher, I'd be suprised if it was under $250.

Well it has a new high bidder of $350.00 and looks like the reserve was met. Anyone make that bid from here? That was a very suspicious jump in bidding from 120.00 to the new total.

I still have the pickup cover from my 2278 Corsair, I just don't keep it on the bass (same with the thumb rest).

The thumb rest is the only other thing that's missing on mine. Ha!
