Description

This is the find of a "Lefty" bass players lifetime !, this gorgeous specimen is the only 4005 hollow bodied 6 String Bass ever made in a Left Handed version over a period of 4 years from 1965 thru 1968, records show they made between 4-6 ever in right handed form, its Forego finish is nothing short of stunning & shows only the slightest wear, its carved maple top has a ton of grain like no other example we have seen, its 2-piece maple back has some nice quilty grain & colorful figuring & is complimented by its perfect checkerboard binding, its fingerboard exhibits no wear & its crushed pearl inlays are sparkling like its new, its 6 open back tuners make its headstock look huge & its upside down Rickenbacker truss rod logo cover is to die for, its 2 “Toaster” pickups are punchy & funky, its single layer White pickgard is as clean as the rest including its Lucite thumb rest & 5 chrome capped knobs, this is surely the only example of an all original 4005/6 Lefty w/serial # HC designating it was made March 1968 that we have seen ever, it also now appears in the new Rickenbacker Bass Book by Paul Boyer on page 42, it is truly “Near Mint” & certainly museum quality & we do not use those terms lightly, it comes with its original Silver Tolex/Blue lined hard case.
