I got a new bass. a 2001 Rickenbacker 4004cii. It is a very cool bass. It will end up a 5 string bass. It came strung with flats. I rewired it Vol, Vol, Tone. I know a lot of people here love the p-bass with flats. Well this bass with flats outdoes the p-bass for sweet low end growl. You p-bass lovers should look at the 4004 basses. Here's some pics. Oh ya ... the flame on this bass is over the top!
