Hi Everyone, I've been lurking here for a few weeks but this is my first post. I started playing bass when I was 12 or 13. Gave it up in my early 20s. I'm 50 now and recently started playing again. Picked up a Rogue violin bass 2 months ago, put Labella flats on it and have been thumping right along. I also have a 2000ish MIM Sunburst P bass. Pix to follow. Ever since I knew what a Rickenbacker bass was I wanted one. Someone is selling a 2013 Midnight Blue locally at a good price. Not my first color choice but I am going to check it out today. Having never purchased a used instrument before, any suggestions on what to look for generally and in particular for a 4003 bass? Thanks in advance.
