1999 Rickenbacker 4003 Plays good, but it is 22 years old (has wear/been used). I'm the original owner (bought in 2000). Pictures say it all. The head has finish/paint wear from hanging on a guitar wall hanger (strange, but true). The pick up switch never did like staying in the up position (neck pick up only position), but it has full volume controls on the knobs, so I never thought to, or cared to, replace it (it was like that since brand new). I'm flexible on it (just not my ax of choice anymore)- I have a MusicMan string ray and/or MusicMan Bongo in my sights, so if you have one of those maybe we could work out a trade. About shipping.. I don't know what the shippers are charging, but again, I'm pliable, and don't intend to act like it costs more than it does to ship it.
