    TRADED 2/10/14

    Since I just acquired a custom made "Rick" I don't need to have two, so this one is no longer needed. It's an immaculate beauty folks. Have to get $2150 plus shipping. Trade value would be the same and I would consider any of the following - 5 stringers only please - which may require me or you to plus in some cash:
    • Marco TFL5 (with custom wood config)
    • Mayones
    • Mike Lull JT5 - Special consideration given to the 24 fret model
    • Roscoe
    • Fibenare
    • Sadowsky - Any
    • Lakland USA Scheff
    Will ship in a nice gig bag. PayPal OK.

    Here are all the major measurements:

    No. Frets: 20
    Scale Length: 33 1/2''
    Neck Width at Nut: 1 11/16''
    Neck Width at 12th Fret: 2 1/16''
    Weight: 9.8 lbs

    According to Paul Boyer’s awesome Rickenbacker bass book, this bass is quite rare because it has the dot marker at the 19th fret. Most of the 4001V63 basses don’t have that dot marker.

    This bass is in excellent condition. No body dings or dents. Beautiful grain, and even the back of the neck has a little flame to it. The headstock has a few small nicks at the very top that you have to view from the end, not noticeable from the front. Plays perfectly with a very low action. The string clearance at the 20th fret measures 1/4 from the top of the fret to the bottom of each string - pretty darn low!. New D’Addario Nickel strings installed. 45-100 gauge.

    Very loud, clear, and full sounding.

    FYI, here's a picture my custom "Rick" that I just received from Poland, thus why I'm selling the 4001V63. This bass IS NOT for sale. Just proof that I really do have two "Ricks."

    My old bass! It is in beautiful condition. Pictures certainly don't do it justice.

    Finalizing a trade, but not done yet. Please let me know right away if you have a trade offer or would like to purchase it outright.
