    Cheers, I would like to trade my NOS/Mint Japan Sadowsky RV4 for a Rickenbacker 4003. Yours will need to be a very clean and nice example as the Metro is near mint. I will trade even up for the right Rick. I would like to keep this to a local sale/trade near Eastern PA/western NJ.

    My RV4 is one of the last Hand-built Metrolines to come out of Yoshi's shop. It's a beautiful example With one of the nicest colored Fretboards I have seen. The Sunburst is an absolutely stunning example of vintage '60's body.

    I may definitely change my mind on letting this go as it will definitely become collectible over time.

    I am fine with just about any year 4003 but I prefer older ones with the V1 bridge. I also prefer dual Truss Rods.

    Here's a pic of this beautiful Metro:
