Overview

Similar in design and shape to the iconic Rickenbacker 360 guitar, the Rickenbacker 4005 is a hollowbody electric bass that was produced starting in 1965. The 4005 was never as popular as Rickenbacker solidbody basses like the 4001, and the total output of 4005 basses reflects this. Since going out of production, however, the 4005 has attracted increased attention from collectors which has greatly increased the value of these instruments. The WB designation indicates that this bass has binding on both sides of the body.

1965 - 1984

Body Style: Double cutaway hollowbody

Wood Composition: 
Maple body, Maple and Walnut neck, Rosewood fingerboard

Design Elements: 
Dual Toaster-top pickups, rounded top edges, triangular inlay, bound neck, R-style tailpiece

Finish Specifications: 
Mapleglo and Fireglo were the original finish options for the 4005. 

Notable Players:
 Jack Casady, John Entwistle
