    Hey there. Looking for the Rickenbacker 4004LK. Does anyone know someone who has one and may want to sell? Thanks

    Those are extreemly rare and extreemly expensive. There were only about 25 or 30 made.

    I heard 60 were made somewhere.

    Do I hear 75? :D

    Check out the Luthier's Corner forum. Someone there is making a pretty close copy.

    You know these things go for $4grand+, right?

    4? More like 10.

    OP: are you after the thing because you love Lemmy and/or the fine carving, or do you just like the look of it? If the latter, a 90s vintage 4004C (the Cheyenne I, in oiled walnut) has much the same kind of look, for a much less exorbitant price. It's essentially a poor man's Lemmy, right down to the gold hardware.

    I wish they'd bring it back, especially since they seem to have a walnut supply again.

    I spoke too soon. I found one on Amazon for $30. It even comes with Lemmy to play it for you!

    IF you can find someone willing to sell.

    There was an Eastern European luthier who made a (very) few copies some years ago, but if I remember correctly they all sold for pretty much what you'd pay for the actual LK.

    RIC usually isn't interested in making reissues, and certainly not so soon after they originally produced them.

    I've never heard of one of those basses selling for anything close to $10k. Not even remotely close. But if you have a link that shows such a sale, send if forth, I'm in the mood to be stunned.
