    This is an absolutely stunning Rickenbacker Laredo Bass guitar. It's the best sounding Rickenbacker I've ever played in my opinion. It's mint condition, and has no issues whatsoever. This bass was made in 2005 and has not been out of its case much since then. Get this here now and avoid the 2-3 year waiting list. Price Drop $1700 shipped inside the 48 states. Thanks

    Those 4004 basses benefit from a slight modification ... if you rewire the 4004 volume, volume, tone with 500k ohm pots then they are suddenly more versatile.

    I put a 4 band Audere preamp in mine and added a 5th string. Since Rickenbacker only makes passive 4 string basses I took it on myself to do the mods.

    4004l%20008.

    4004l%20009.

    4004l%20030.

    Not exactly. They did make 5 strings but stopped years ago. You can't order one even though they still refer to them on their website.

    Dude ... try to order one ... it has been 5 to 7 years since they actually delivered a 5 string bass ... they quit making the 4003s5 back about 2001 and they replaced it with the 4004cii5 ... then that bass had a flaw in the pickup design and they haven't made a 5 string bass in years ... So I did a few DIY Rickenbacker 5 string basses ...

    That's odd, I thought the thread was about this bass:

    My point was the 4004 basses are beautiful but they are one dimensional wired toggle, volume, tone ... this does not allow a blending of the pickups.
     
  13. Jeez Ric5, what were you thinking?

    If you keep bumping this to the top someone might buy it and then I won't be able to!

    Every time I see this thread I start to sweat. Great looking bass!
