Rickenbacker / 4001 Mono Bass / 1969 / Fireglo Finish / Bass

The Rickenbacker 4001 Bass was a whirlwind design when new w/its crested wave body style back in 1961. This "Mono" example was one of the final of its type (all were stereo after this period) having an IB code dating to February 1969. It is a very rare bass being 1 of less than 90 made that year & a very well restored example done by Rickenbacker expert Dale Fortune to original specs from many years ago. Its Fireglo finish is actually better than the factory applied when new & has a depth like none I've seen. Its famous "Checkerboard" bound body is stunning & compliments it perfectly. Its "Crushed" Pearl inlaid fingerboard still glistens & feels delicious. Its maple neck-thru body is wide & flat w/its famous large size headstock w/mahogany wings w/excellent frets. Its Toaster pickup appears to be a reissue but its Horseshoe lead pickup appears original w/original pots dated to the 8th week of 1968 & it sounds as good as Chris Squier from "Yes" & plays better than any 4001 we have ever owned. I am not a bass player that uses a pick but this one funks like no other we've owned prior. Its white'gard is a perfect reproduction & she still wears her original clear lucite thumb rest & chrome capped knobs. Its old-style open back tuners hold perfectly. Its chrome hardware is still quite clean. If this were an all original Mono 4001 it could be twice the price. This is a fabulous player & looks simply near perfect, comes in a nice generic hard case.
