    Up for sale/trade is my 2014 Rickenbacker 4003 in the becoming rare Ruby Red finish. Everything is dead stock besides I removed the bridge pickup cover because it got in my way and installed a chrome treble bezel in its place. The stock bridge is back on. I still have the pickup cover, of course and will include that in the original hard-shell case it came with.

    It is currently strung with Thomastik JF344's, which sound/feel amazing with this bass. If i had to give the harshest rating on it, I'd say the condition is 8 out of 10, due to a few chips in the paint at the headstock and a chip in the gloss of the fingerboard (doesn't affect play-ability whatsoever, purely aesthetic). The frets have practically no wear because it has spent it's life with flatwounds on it. These pictures don't do the color justice. I haven't gone one gig without getting complimented on this bass. I'm selling this to buy a Rickenbacker 4003s which leads me to...

    My main trade interests are:

    Rickenbacker 4003S (Any finish is cool, although Ruby and Midnight Blue are my favorites)
    Rickenbacker 4003SW
    Music Man Big Al 4/5 SSS
    Guild B-301/B-302 + cash
    Fender Blacktop Jazz + cash
    Fender 5 string P/PJ/J maybe?

    I'm interested in other trade offers, anything but amps/cabs and Active-only basses (Active/Passive is fine though). 20170120_134449.

    Absolutely beautiful bass but not really what I'm looking for right now. Thank you for the offer!
