1973 Rickenbacker 4001

Here we have a very early 1973 Rickenbacker 4001 in Jetglo finish! This bass plays and sounds like a dream. It is one of the best we have ever played with a low action, etc. It is in excellent condition for a bass of this age with just minor marks and scratches/play wear. The pots have been replaced at some point. The mute foam under the bridge has been replaced with some blue foam, this could be removed or replaced.  Included is a hardcase.
