    I found a 1978 Rickenbacker 4001 for $1000. I was thinking about getting it but I don't know what they sound like. It is in perfect condition too, burgundy finish. So if you guys could give me an idea of what they sound like.

    thanks

    RIC with flat wounds, think Paul McCartney with mid to late Beatles or Wings.
    RIC with round wounds, think Chris Squire of Yes or Geddy Lee of earley Rush.
    But for $1000, you could get a NEW 4003!!
     
  3. Heh..whenever I see a Ric I think of Cliff.

    Studg10,

    I believe you can find a nice used 4001 for less than $ 1000.00 ...

    Hope this helps,
