I am selling my recently acquired 1998 Rickenbacker 4003 in cobalt blue with black binding and black hardware. I traded another bass plus cash for this a few weeks ago and since then I bought a beautiful Walnut G&L L2000 so I am in that position where I have to make a decision. The bass is beautiful but it is not quite my cup of tea so I have decided to offer it up to a true Rick fan via Talkbass. The bass sounds great and plays great. It is in absolutely fantastic shape other than a crack in the pickguard that was there when I bought it (see photo). Other than that it is pretty much mint. After I got it home I ordered a treble bezel (cove model) from Pick of the rick. The bezel just arrived and I haven't installed it yet but it will be included in the deal of course. The new owner can install it if they wish. Price $1750.00 plus shipping in North America. Those are Canadian dollars as well so a little cheaper for those in the U.S. but shipping will be cheaper for Canadians. I am located in the Toronto area so anyone local can save themselves the shipping and get a very cool and fairly rare Rick. No Trades at all at this time. For Sale only.
