    Ask the seller some closer shots of the bass.

    What seems strange to me is :

    1/ The price, very low
    2/ The "general feeling" that makes me doubt if it is a real Rickenbacker (it is just a general impression, but of course I may be wrong)
    3/ The model (4001 or 4003) is not specified by the owner

    Also, don't forget that all Rickenbacker copies are illegal.

    Hope this helps,

    This one looks O.K. to me, but I'd ask for a shot of the jack plate w/serial numbers before bidding.
    I think the main problem is whoever wrote the discription!
     
  8. From what I can see, it looks good to me too. Trouble is, we can't see much.

    It would definitely be worth contacting the seller and asking for some additional information, and hopefully, a few more pictures - particularly the jackplate.
