I just received my Rickenbacker Bass yesterday !!! It is a Rickenbacker '88 model 4001V63 mapleglo. This Bass could almost pass for a year 2000 release because of its mint condition. For those who know Talkbasser "Bassman", he is the one who sold that beauty to me. I highly recommend him if one of his Basses for sale are of a possible interest to you. As a big Fan of these Basses for long time, I now can say that I have a gorgeous instrument with a unique sound. I want to thank "Bassman" who was really kind and professionnal during all the dealings and TalkBass who linked both of us together.
