    IMPORTANT NOTE - I'll be in NYC this coming Saturday night, December 17th, with time to kill (airport trip,) and could bring the bass. I'll knock $50 off if anyone paying cash wants it delivered to them in the NYC area that night only!

    Greetings, TB shoppers. First off, NO TRADES - gotta pay off a Sadowsky I just bought.

    I just received this Rickenbacker in a trade, and while it makes me nostalgic for Ricks I've owned in the past, the dream Sadowsky just became available, so this is last in-first out.

    It plays wonderfully. The neck pickup was just replaced with a new one ordered from Rickenbacker, since it came to me with a DOA neck pickup. The work was done by a great luthier - Chris Tatalias of Hot Rod Six Strings in Brookfield, CT.

    SO, the buyer will receive a fully-functional 4003 with a Rickenbacker-branded case and a nice blue suede strap. The bass is in really great shape with no dings or dents.

    Selling for $1250 shipped in the CONUS.

    Folks, this is off the market for a while... the luthier diagnosed the problem as a bad pickup. I'll revive this thread once it's fixed.
