    I have not been actively playing for quite a while. My trusty 4005 has lain unused for nearly four years. It is time to let go of it.

    Brief details:

    • I bought it at a pawn shop in 1985
    • It comes with its original hardshell case
    • Both the instrument and case are in very good-but-used condition
    • Dale Fortune refurbished the neck (finish, fretboard, frets, nut, and truss rods) in August 2009
    • The bass is original except for the clear tug bar, some screws, the output jack (but the jack plates is original), and the blend control (which is now a toggle switch)
    • Complete documentation comes with it, including the original sales receipt

    The moon-eyes stickers can easily come off. I just don't have the heart to do it myself. ;)

    There is a small wear spot on the back, age-related crazing in the finish, and mild wear. This is the real deal. It plays and sounds exactly as you would want.

    Asking price is $10k by PayPal or bank transfer. The bass is located in eastern Tennessee.

    Oh, and the 4001 in one of the photos is only for comparison. It left the fold a long time ago.

    Suddenly having two pre-transition '73 4001's doesn't seem as nice... ;)
