HI all, I am a new to the forum so not savvy with how this works. I have a ricky bass 4001 that I bought in 1965, I used it in my early years then went onto other basses. It has been in its case for the last 30+ years at my Dads place. I recently used it and noticed that the bridge pick up is nearly silent with only very quiet treble, also the neck needs straightening but I am frightened to attemp this as the bass is so old. any advise guy's! Cheers, steviep.
