    UPDATE: Bass is for resale. Buyer was unhappy of the crack that was posted in this add. Bass is to be in my possession soon.

    ); Unfortunately im going to have to part ways with this bass. Everything is completely intact as far as electronics, bridge and all. Has some dings here and there. Comes with the original case. Ill upload more photos later.
    Im looking for 1600 CONUS

    Does a 4001 Rickenbacker sound interesting to you in a trade?

    Due to complications with the buyer i am now putting this back on the classifieds. Apparently the buyer was very upset with the crack that was shown in the picture above on the back of the headstock. Right now the bass is to be shipped back to me.

    Is there anyone out there want to still purchase this bass despite the small crack? like ive said, everything is fully functional and works 100%

    I don't see a crack, only what looks like a compressed scratch of sorts?

    Its above the top left tuning peg. Went through a long ordeal with paypal over whether or not he should get a refund. they went in his favor for god knows what reason. -_- But overall that was why he didnt want the bass.

    A little bit of me feels happy im getting the bass back but another apart of me really needs to sell this.

    And yeah its just a tiny deep scratch. Has no problem with the bass whatsover electronically or whatnot.
     
  16. Are you talking about the straight line right above the plate of the upper left tuner? Looks more like a depression in the finish.. does it go to the wood?

    Are you serious??? I've seen these gems go for close to $2K - in a lot worse shape! That tiny crack??? Puh-leeze...

    I've said it before and I'll say it again; the only way I'll give up my RD (see my avatar) is if someone can pry it from my cold dead hands.

    Thats what i told the buyer :( he even felt like i ripped him off. He thought the price i sold it to him for (1500) was too much considering that little crack/scratch... Bleh
