Beautiful 1973 Rickenbacker 4001, Fireglo finish with checkered Binding in extremely good condition. Original hard case included. 

The Fireglo finish is still very vibrant and deep in colour. It has checkered binding on the body, white (now cream coloured) binding on the neck & crushed pearl inlays. The toaster & lead pickups sound fantastic with strong output. The wavy Grover tuners are clean and fully functioning. The neck is clean and straight with only one or two small dings/scuffs on the back, the frets are in great shape with minimal wear. The binding has mellowed to a creamy Yellow and is all intact. A few minor scuffs to the body but nothing major. This is one very fine and rare bass, it's also great fun to play. It has that killer Rick tone as soon as you start playing. 

All hardware and electronics are in fine working order. The solder has been broken and re-done. The truss rods are fully functioning and the action has been set nice and low in our workshop with a set of round-wound strings. Serial MA 088. (Jan 1973) Weight 9lbs 1.5oz. Nut width 42.75 mm. Depth at 1st fret 22 mm.
