    2011 Rickenbacker 4003 bass Mapleglow

    Very good condition w OHSC
    What can I say about a fairly recent 4003 Mapleglow that hasn’t been said? I’ve had the bass for a little more than a year and never played it outside my home studio. I’d keep it if I could. But I’m pretty committed to short scales these days. As I’m about to retire, management says I can no longer keep what I don’t use.

    This 2011 4003MG doesn’t appear to have ever been gigged, based on the lack of player wear and absence of dings or scratches. The only noticeable blemish is a small (less than a quarter inch) ding on the front edge at the top of the headstock (visible in picture). rick11.jpg

    As Mapleglow Rics go, this one is a beauty. Very nicely figured maple front and back (not always the case), pristine lacquered fingerboard (no longer available on new 4003s), nice pearloid shark teeth. Bridge is upgraded to a Hipshot (original Ric bridge is fine and is included) and treble bezel added. Near zero fret wear. The case is in good shape (see pic).
    I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. Just PM me. I’m just offering the Ric on TB for now but may list it elsewhere if not sold within a couple weeks. I’d like to get $1,900 shipped insured to the CONUS. Reasonable offers will be considered too. Thanks for looking.

    Beautiful bass. All the mods are done for you. A Ric was my first "good" bass many, many years ago. It'd be fun to have one again. If my LG3000 would sell I'd be very tempted.
