    I'm reposting this because I could not edit the title.

    This Rick has been played, but not abused. The biggest issue with it is some finish issues. There are several areas where the outermost clear coat is coming off, above the pickups where thumbs rest and back of the neck mostly. I’m not sure if this particular rick got a crummy clear coat from the factory or what, but it is what it is. There is also a spot on the neck where it sat in the wrong type of stand and screwed up some of the finish. There are dings on the headstock, and perhaps a zipper mark. The bass plays great and sets up with nice action. Truss rod and electronics work fine. Ships in Rick case. Has the treble bezel on it. No bridge cover.
    This one does have the vintage tone circuit pull knob option.
    Made in 2007 The Serial number is 0734473
    $1200 shipped in the US.

    This shows the finish coming off as mentioned earlier. You have to hold it in the right light to see it at all.

    Back of the neck clear coat issues. This can be felt when playing, but you could easily rub off the rest with steel wool and there would not be the difference in feel. The spots where the clear coat is off still looks nice, its jut that white line around it that looks bad.

    Hi sharp bass, I may be interested? A guy on my local craigslist has a mint condition 4003 in the same color, asking 1400(was asking 1750, but was willing to sell that low to me) I'm attempting to get a loan from my bank(hopefully getting approved) but since yours is cheaper I may swing this route instead, I could pay you via paypal, I'm from Wisconsin, so I'm not sure how much shipping for you would cost, send me a PM with more details and possibly pictures if you can.

    Are you the same as Donavan? I sent a pm to Donavan, not Donavan 321. Do you have two accounts by chance?
