    I think you're right; BurgandyGlo is what it's called.

    BG it is indeed.. that's a nice one. Some of these finishes
    were/became so dark they were refered to as 'EggplantGlo'!

    I don't have a picture of my '76 4001 to post, but maybe you can help me I.D. what it's finish is called. It's similar to a FireGlo but it's a brown burst instead of FireGlo's red. I was told it was called a WalnutGlo or a maybe it was called AutumnGlo? :confused:

    Thanks, -Art

    There have been a few different versions of Autumnglo over the years. Most people get it confused with Walnut.

    Autumnglo during the 70's (as seen on the 4001 pictured above) had a satin finish. Where Walnut had the gloss finish.

    Yup, the 4001 pictured at the very top of the thread is Burgundyglo. Looks like a late 73 or from sometime in 1974.

    The Burgundy-Glo is the color that Cliff Burton played right?
     
  10. I think the finish of Cliff's Rick was a Crimson-Glow.

    Could be wrong though - it's one of their lesser seen colors

    I had a burgundy glow 4001 in the late '80's. It was my first nice bass. Bought it for $300 and sold it a few years later for $350. And still kick myself in the ass every time I think about it.

    Cliff's was Burgandyglo. Rick never offered a Crimsonglo.

    If I'm not mistaken, the color name wasn't Burgandyglo, but just Burgandy.

    Burgandy and this one are my all time fave Ric finishes. The Burgandy has a very vintage vibe wheras the red with black hardware looks very modern imo. Mmmmmm.

    I'm not sure about the 4001s but on the 4003s they call it Montezuma Brown. I've been thinking about getting a fretless in this color.

    I think Montezuma Brown was the limited-time color for 2004, so get one now while they are still around.

    That looks like the first Ric I ever played, which was the second bass I ever played. It was the reason I took up bass!
