It's with a heavy-heart that I list my prized 1976 Rickenbacker 4001 bass in tuxedo white finish with matching Rickenbacker hard-shell case. Unfortunately, this beauty has been in storage more than it has been played. Apart from a handful of recording sessions and gigs, I'm simply not using this bass enough to justify keeping it.

I purchased it in Chicago circa 2013 from its original owner. It has been professionally maintained and set-up by Chicago Music Exchange (Chicago, IL) and Nomadic Guitars (Los Angeles, CA) while in my possession.  All electronics are in perfect working order. Low action, straight neck - a beautiful relic! According to the Rickenbacker serial decoder, this bass was manufactured in April of 1976.

It currently has Labella flat-wounds on it to achieve that signature McCartney "Sgt.Pepper" sound. 

It comes complete with matching Rickenbacker 94550 Vintage 4000 Series hard-shell case with midnight blue plush interior. The case alone retails for $350.

As pictured, the bass has a few minor dings, scrapes, and bruises. These blemishes are purely cosmetic; no hindrance to its fantastic playability and tone - and they add just the right amount of road-worn character to a vintage piece. 

No trades. Cash only. Price FIRM. Local pick-up only. If interested, shoot me a line!
