Original vintage Rickenbacker 4001 bass in original Fireglo finish, with original hard case. The serial number on the Ric-O-Sound input jack plate indicates that the bass was made in February of 1976. All of the electronics, wiring, pickups, pots, switch are all original. Bridge, tuners are original to the guitar and are in excellent condition. 3 of the original knobs are missing the reflector tops and the pickup cover/hand rest is missing. The finish shows beautiful patina with only a handful of blemishes and some rash to the back (see photos). Worldwide postage is available.
