1973 Rickenbacker 4001 bass. Made in USA. Mother of pearl inlay has yellowed with age. Always cased & cared for – a difficult bass to find in this condition. No significant cosmetic damage other than the smudge on the clear that you can see on the back. MI 3989 on the input jack (which is 1973). ORIGINAL hardshell leather case. An unbelievable bass (considering it is just shy of 40 years old) and I hate to sell it. No trades. Sounds & plays wonderfully. Original wiring & pots. Treble pickup is a newer Ric pickup from about 5 years ago. Case has no rips or tears, just as you see in the pictures & locks & latches all work. Amazing condition overall.
