Rare Electric Guitar
Take a look at this one. This aged white Rickenbacker 4001 Bass is in great shape consideringit has really been played. The neck is as straight as an arrow and very comfortable in the hand.And, just like most Ricks, you can get deep lows, high mids, or a sweet combination from this beauty,in stereo or mono.
It is a bass guitar that was manufactured by Rickenbacker as a "deluxe model" of the 4000 between 1961 and1981 before being replaced by an updated version, the Rickenbacker 4003.There are several models of the 4001,such as: The 4001, 4001S, 4001LH, 1999 (European model), 4001V63 (reissue), and the newer 4001C64S C Seriesrecreation in honor to Paul McCartney´s left-handed 4001s bass with reversed headstock.
The Rickenbacker 4001 was designed with the "crested-wave" body shape, much like the other basses of the 4000series. The 4001 model features a neck-through construction, a full-wood body, fret board with metal strings(originally flat-wound, though many players replaced them with round-wounds), twin truss rods, triangle inlays,two pickups, two volume and two tone dials, selector switch, and wiring for Rick-O-Sound (standard in modelspost-1971). Rickenbacker also produced six-string and short-scale versions of the 4001 model.
The 4001 Electric Bass is famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch and solid underlying bass. A subtlestrip of binding graces the elegantly curved body and the Rosewood fingerboard. Triangular inlays and stereocapability are standard features.
