I bassi Rickenbacker modello 4001 hanno un seguito di players molto nutrito. Il loro sound e' piu' tagliente e pianistico rispetto ai bassi Fender, facendoli scegliere da musicisti molto distanti tra loro, da Paul McCartney (che abbandono' temporaneamente il suo amato Hofner Violin Bass per un 4001, lo dipinse a colori psichedelici e lo uso' per gli ultimi lavori dei Beatles), Geddy Lee dei Rush, John Entwistle degli Who, Chris Squire, virtuoso del basso con gli Yes degli anni '70, e persino Lemmy dei Motorhead. In realta', la scelta del basso di Lemmy e' piu' dovuta al caso: ''Gli Hawkwind stavano facendo un concerto all'aperto, un giorno d'estate, ed il bassista non si presento'. Cosi' hanno detto: ''Chi suona il basso?'' e qualcuno
mi ha indicato. Mi hanno appeso un Rickenbacker al collo e mi hanno detto 'Vai!' ''

Il periodo più interessante per questa produzione della Rickenbacker che sino al 1973 ha mantenuto le stesse caratteristiche della prima serie fatta dagli anni 60's con la stessa tipologia di scelta delle essenze e le stesse caratteristiche dei pick-up, modificata  nel 1974. Queste caratteristiche rendono lo strumento di grande pregio e di più rara reperibilità.

The Rickenbacker model 4001 basses have a very large following of players. Theirssound is more cutting and piano than the Fender bass, making them choose frommusicians very distant from each other, by Paul McCartney (who abandoned 'temporarily his beloved Hofner Violin Bass for a 4001, he painted it in colorpsychedelics and I use it for the last Beatles works), Geddy Lee of the Rush, JohnEntwistle of the Who, Chris Squire, virtuoso of the bass with the Yes of the 70s, andeven Motorhead's Lemmy. Actually, Lemmy's bass choice is more dueto chance: '' The Hawkwind were doing an outdoor concert, one summer day,and the bassist did not show up. So they said: 'Who plays the bass?' 'And someoneHe indicated to me. They hung a Rickenbacker around my neck and they said 'Go!'
