    hello !

    there is a rick on ebay germany (art.-nr. 3702533051) that looks like it has a maple frettboard. it seems to have a toaster pickup, and the seller says it's out of the seventies, but don't gives proofs or a picture of the jack-plate.
    my question: did rickenbacker ever produce 4001s with maple frettboards, or is that bass kind of a rip-off ?
