1984 Rickenbacher 4001

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by orville, Feb 4, 2004.


  1. There is a sign up here in my school for a 1984 Rickenbacher 4001 bass for $500. I have not seen it or ever really played a Ricky.

    I am relatively poor and would be difficult for me to pay that amount. Is it a good price? I realize much of that depends on the condition, which I am not sure about. However, especially people who own Rickenbachers, is it worth buying?

    It's probably a 4003. The 4001 was discontinued in 1983.
    If the bass is in good to excellent condition, then it seems like a deal to me whether it's a 4001 or 4003.
