*SOLD* FS/FT 1975 Rickenbacker 4001
Here's the deal on this one. Guitar friend had this hanging on the wall in his bedroom for years. I grabbed it because I wanted one as it is the first bass that I ever played. Awesome to reconnect with the first bass that I ever played. Lots of memories ! I offered to return it to my friend but he refuses to part with the beautiful guitar that I traded.
The problem is that in spite of the emotional attachment, I never gig it. Poor thing sits at home. I love this thing dearly but have had to institute a no gig it, no keep it policy.
March 75 4001 with what appears to be the original case.
Yes it snarls like a Ric should. Thinner neck which is absolutely blistering fast.
Overall wear is excellent. Yes, it has some small nicks and chips. See pics for wear areas. It was clearly played for years. That said, no huge belt buckle gashes etc. It is the real deal in terms of beautiful wear. Clearly never abused.
Everything appears to be original with the exception of wiring, based on commentary from the Ric experts here.
PG has a small crack as noted in pic.
Short paint line crack appears up by nut, and another at neck joint. These appear to age issues versus separation issues.
Neck is dead straight. I put strings on and the bass maintains a med/low action.
Pots are scratchy as heck ! I have not pulled them out and sprayed them. I was just going to order a new wiring harness and be done with it.
I'll do 1300.00 shipped CONUS/INSURED. I will consider trades but please be fair in terms of offering an instrument of the same caliber. Fair trade value for fair trade value.
If you require additional pics, be glad to take them. I will be out of town for a few days but will check PM's regularly.
This really needs to go a Ric loving home. This bass needs to back up stage, doing what it does best.
I reserve the right to pull this add if I cry myself to sleep.
*DROOL*. I have never needed $1300 so badly.
I'd offer a trade if we were closer. Haven't been in a shipping mood lately.
Pickup looks like its in the 74 position....?
Oooh, man. I LOVE white rics!!!!
My birth year Ric and the best color option available. Man, I HAVE to stay off talkbass classifieds..
And PENDING Cash sale.
This is just proof that if you really don't want to sell, bass is gone in hours. If you have something that you would prefer goes away, you have it for months.
Leaving this up until bass arrives with buyer and he confirms its as described.
THanks for all the interest. Got some very nice trade offers. In unlikely event that deal falls through, I will circle back around.
Damn I was literally just talking with the wife about buying this. Just missed it
It did go to a great guy, though which at least makes me feel better.
Man, I figured it would have found a home but Jeez, I am still answering PM's.
Thanks so much everyone !
She is SOLD !
