    I've replaced the pickguard since this pic was taken, but this is what my $350 pawn shop Azureglo prize looked like when she came to live with me (she's a 1981 4001):

    Nino w/long hair. WOW. I think that is the only
    picture I have w/my hair out. I always used to
    keep it in a pony tail. Now I'm a psycho baldie.

    i got it for ~$300 in '86. unfortunately, it's not for sale :D
     
  20. Ah, my goal is clear, Travel back in time to the mid 80's and buy a Rickenbacker bass for ~300 so I don't have to loby my parents to let me spend the $1000 they cost now adays :D (My mom maintains that its insane for any musical instrument to cost more then $300-$500.. *sigh*)
