This is a feeler thread for a Rickenbacker 4001c64s in matte black! It’s a magnificent instrument with everything you’d want in a Rick. Comfortable neck, excellent vintage tones, and it records especially well. I’ve had it for about 10 years now. But… I’ve had a string of weirdly bad luck with the bridge area. While swapping out the stock bridge for a Hipshot, a screw snapped off. I made my best attempt to drill it out, but quickly learned that I do not have the right skills and equipment for the task. Then later, during a particularly strong Geddy Lee kick, I attempted to install a Badass bridge, and that didn’t go well either. This time TWO screws snapped off, and so I gave up on that idea. Like I said, weirdly bad luck. There’s nothing visibly wrong, and it doesn’t affect the original bridge, but I still felt like it would be worth mentioning. Currently, it has the stock bridge which has been held snugly in place for many years by 4 out of 5 screws. Tail lift is minimal and well within normal range for one of these instruments. Cosmetically, the bass is in decent shape. The matte finish can be a little sensitive, and I did my best to photograph any scratches or wear. There’s some slight fret wear on the zero fret, but the rest of them are in great shape. So yeah, it’s got some flaws. I don’t mean to dwell on them, because it’s a fine bass with plenty of life, but I want folks to know they’re there. Currently set up with Schaler style strap locks. Weighs in at 9.8lbs. I’m listing this as a feeler because prices seem to be all over the place with these, and I’m not sure how the flaws affect the value. I haven’t played it for a while, and I’m curious to see if anyone might be interested in it. It could be a good chance to get a good price on an amazing bass!! I’m starting out with asking $2350 shipped, but I’m definitely open to discussing the price further. Sale includes a Ric hardshell case. Paypal and CONUS only, please! Not interested in trades.
