    A044F9CC-49C9-4CA2-99EC-71F83DE03852.jpeg So, I’ve been watching Genesis’ 1972 Belgian Tv appearance more closely recently. I always knew Rutherford was playing a Ric 4001, but I just noticed the control layout and I don’t recall ever seeing anything like it.
    I’ve included a screenshot. I’m curious as to whether anyone knows anything about this bass.

  2. Try asking over in the Ric club. Someone there will know.

    Good eye! All the times I’ve watched this I never saw that layout. Love the entire show.

    Paging Jeff Scott! Paging Jeff Scott!

    Jeff might know what Rutherford did. It looks to me that Rutherford customized the controls of his 4001S (RM 1999?).

    I agree that it looks like a customized control layout. But I'd love to confirm and know what it does and why he did it.
