    Price:
    $1600-$1800
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    Virginia
    For sale ONLY- my beloved 2014 Ruby Rickenbacker 4003!
    39FE5D35-49DB-4E27-A660-5535CDA20948.
    3BE259AE-19A0-483E-917B-6C9C04C18DD5.
    (Only selling due to an almost emergency, need to come up with some funds ASAP!)
    This beauty has been modded with the following:
    • Black Pickguardian pickguard
    • LEGIT black truss rod cover (taken from a late 80’s 4003 / $200 value)
    • Black aluminum Hipshot bridge
    The awesome thing? I’m including all of the original parts as well (bridge, pickup cover, white TRC, pickguard)— as well as a brand new never installed Nordstrand NORDENBOCKER pickup, brand new black Schaller straploks, and a snazzy Couch guitar strap.
    DB7265FB-02ED-43CF-A601-A17031E32D82.
    2689C8CF-B64E-45A4-BA7C-8119451C207E.
    E88FC9E7-2E15-4119-A5AD-84CA1B5D806B.
    This bass is by no means a player grade instrument, in fact it’s in really fantastic condition- but there are a few blemishes that don’t affect playability in slightest. The headstock has the tiniest scuff that I just noticed this afternoon.
    1F18EB3D-179F-46D7-AB79-4F2939F11B53.
    There is a chip on the heel of the neck where it meets body (was like that when I bought it)
    4AE82ACC-C067-4A05-95F0-8D75B83444E4.
    There are a couple of very small pressure dings/swirls on the back, next to impossible to see & actually photograph. And there is a bit of the usual clouding on the fretboard, with peeling around the 3rd fret on the E string side (looks way more noticeable in the photo! Kinda crazy)
    A7CF7847-D4CA-4609-A458-BC85ABB6C99B.
    All in all, this is the most amazing looking bass I’ve ever owned. The input jack & selector switch can be a little finicky at times (was going to have my tech tighten things up under the hood when he installed the Nordenbocker, alas it shall be upon the buyer to have this done now.)

    Comes with OHSC that’s a bit scuffed in places (rubbed some paint off my wall!) but functions perfectly. No case candy.


    Asking $1800 for the entire package.
    (Willing to go $1700 without the Nordstrand pickup & Couch strap!)
    (Willing to go $1600 without the black truss rod cover & the white TRC reinstalled.)
    Not willing to part things out at this time.
    This is a pretty awesome deal!

    Local cash sale is VERY much preferred
    (VA/DC and surrounding areas)
    But I may decide to ship if potential buyers are willing to help with shipping costs. PM me!

    Please message if you have any questions, and like I’ve said- NO TRADES at this time. I will upload some more photos later this evening as well.
    Thanks for looking!

    Knocked the price down to $1700 without the Nordstrand pickup & Couch strap.
    I may be willing to go $1600 without the black TRC (will reinstall the stock white one) if that’s a thing any potential buyer can live without.
    Personally, I think it looks super rad!
    Lots of interest but I’ll say again, please feel free to PM me if you’re at all interested in buying!
