    For sale is my 1998 Rickenbacker 4003 in FireGlo. It ships with a Rickenbacker case and some of the original documentation which all appears original. There are no modifications made to the bass that I'm aware of. This era of the FireGlo is a bit darker than both the current and earlier FireGlo colors making it more unique.

    The bass has moderate cosmetic wear, some chips along the binding, assorted light dings, blemishes and some light buckle rash on the back. I did my best to photograph in honest light. It's currently strung with 40-100 Rotosounds with a low action.

    I prefer a sale, but am open to trades of roughly equivalent value.
