I've found a Rickenbacker bass that I'm thinking of buying, but I'm not that familiar with Rics. I went to the website and found that with the serial number I could date it to Dec. 1984 but that was it.I don't know the model but I think it's a 3001. Here's the description; 4 knobs, one toggle switch,bolt on neck,ser.#XL1536, black finish, two pickups,pickup cover,rosewood fretboard with dot inlays,all gold hardware. It has the original case and tool kit. I would appreciate any info at all on this bass like price, quality, model name( I'd really like to know this) etc. Thanks in advance for your responses, and I hope we can identify this bass.
