While preparing my book over the last eight years or so, I accumulated quite a few Rickenbacker basses. I'm no longer an active player, and I'd like to see the collection distributed to folks who want/need/appreciate a good Rick! This is one of perhaps as few as three 4001V63s done in Rick's gorgeous metallic blue-green -- Turquoise! I bought this one "used" from Steve Wood (Mr. Sea Green!) in August 2009. In near-mint condition, I gigged with it once and it sounded great! Many players will agree that the tone of the reissued Toaster and Horseshoe pickups is wonderful. Very unusual model/color combination as RIC played with a few non-standard shades on the V63 in the last year or so of production. Now's your chance to scoop up this rarity. Price is firm at $2950 with case (plus shipping). No trades, no lower offers.
