    Shouldn't it have the green fiber treble pickup, aluminum base plate and square corner chrome?

    I checked into it more from the original owner. Your right, bridge pickup could have been replaced in the late 70's. I'm not a Rick expert by any means on the technical details and appreciate the help.

    Price reduction to consider this. $3800 shipped.

    Bass does play and sound amazing. Best Rick I have heard.

    Final Price bump to $3400! This bass has some cool history too. Was used on kid rocks first two albums. Sounds great and the neck is thin and extremely fast. Best thing is the weight is the lightest Rick I've heard of at just over 8lbs.

    Also consider trades plus cash. Newer p bass or jazz. Double bass too.
