Help me out folks. I own a 1974 Rick 4001 that I originally purchased used. The previous (who must have an idiot) refinished the top of the bass and did a pretty poor job of it while he was at it. The finish on the back and sides is original aand it aged to a lovely french vanilla white color. Anyway, it was originally white with black binding. I don't believe that the top was white because the pickguard is white as is the trussrod cover. I tried contacting Rickenbacker but they could not tell me. Any ideas what it might have been. I would like to restore it to original condition. Thanks!
