This version of the black SG bass sounded very much like a 4001.
As pictured it has a maple neck, plywood body, Rick neck pickup, a Rickenbacker wiring harness, and a Seymour Duncan 1/4 pound Jazz pickup. With all of that combined it had a real 4001 bite. I wanted it to be a little darker so I put in humbucker pickups on a later version.
Clubs - 5 String, Black and Maple, Rickenbacker

Older basses are not better, they are just older.
