Beautiful find, a Vintage 1974 Rickenbacker 4001 Bass in the desirable Fireglo finish in Excellent all - original condition with a non-original period correct orange lined Fender Bass OHSC.
These are iconic looking and sounding basses and this one is a stellar example that just plays like crazy and sounds like thunder. Very little playwear observed and the frets and fretboard are nearly pristine. Overall finish is vibrant Fireglo sunburst with only a few dinks and pecks with a few spots smoothly worn to the wood shown in the pictures. Light finish checking but the top, back, neck and headstock are very clean.
The complete instrument is all original although the switch tip may be a later addition. There is also a partially broken lower knob on the bridge volume control that doesn't present as a problem when you're turning the upper portion. The bass sounds amazing with the pickups and controls working flawlessly and many killer and familiar tones possible.
This is a beautiful example of an early model Ricky 4001. The tone and clarity of these instruments is legendary. You can feel this one in your belly when you play here and look out when you plug in...
