    I want to play one pretty bad, a nice mid to lates 70's 4001 would be a nice addiiton...heh i cant wait to see your new rock man. :hyper:
  3. Getting it before Christmas? I hope you found already found one and got it put aside for you and that you are not ordering one. Otherwise it could take up to 9 months..possibly more.

    But congrats that you are getting a Ric.

    I used to own a '74 maple 4001; I shoulda never sold that bass. I loved the way it looked & played, just hated the way it sounded. I only paid $425 for it (no case). :eek:

    Replacement pickups and different strings -- BAM. New sound! ;)

    I'd love to own a Ric -- they're just soooooo pretty!

    It's on my unofficial wish list; I'll own another one someday. It was the woodtone version anyway, & I'm kinda partial to paint. Balck or blue would be very cool.

    here here. I keep going back and forth from a 4004, MIA Jazz, and a Lakland Hollowbody. I used to have a 4001 but i sold it cause there was something wrong with it.....the signal output kept peaking and diving giving me an inconsistant sound. mmmm i do like that 4004 though.

    i had a 1980 ric 4001. it was beautiful. the 4003's are sub par if you ask me. plus if you buy it a guitar center, they won't let you return it if you do not like it later. :bassist:

    Then don't buy a Ric from Guitar Centre.
