4005… Who Knows? My Crazy Obsession!
Ok, I have been scouring the web for weeks looking at pictures of 4005's. Just can't get enough of them, only played one once in the 80's but it was at a music store and it was so long ago I remember very little about it. At first I was thinking that the bodies had to be at least a couple of inches thick. Then I started seeing pictures from the side and doing rough math from the quarter inch jack and the binding (that I think is a quarter inch) as reference. From my calculations the bodies on a 4005 seem like they are about 1.25 inches thick?? What? That doesn't seem right. That would be the same thickness as a 4001/4003? Does anyone know if that is correct. Please help me end my obsession so I can move on to a new obsession!

They're slightly deeper than a 4001 but not by much.
My Rick obsession is even worse and less easy to satisfy, I like the Lightshow Bass.

I was poised to purchase a 4005 back in '72, my guitarist talked me into a 4001 (which I still have) and have regretted it ever since. Have always felt that I needed to get a 4005 but as the years went by I realized that a 4005 was out of my price range. Several years ago I picked up an Italia Rimini. It's not a 4005 but it makes me feel a little better now. She's beautiful in her own right and a welcome addition to the collection.

Jazz Ad: Good luck on the "Lightshow obsession" I feel for you man! Hardly any good pictures of those rare beasts.
Londo Molari: If you understood "my obsession" you wouldn't have posted any info that wasn't Rickenbacker ;) but since you did type in "4005" three times in one paragraph, that seems obsessive so you are good! :)
But seriously does anyone know what that dimension is AND is it the same for the double bound as the single bound? The single looks thicker to me.

A french forum buddy had a craving for a 4005 so he had his own version of it luthier made.

Wow, Dark Stars too… probably sounds nothing like a 4005.
