Rickenbacker / 4005 / 1967 / Fireglo / Bass For Sale
1967 Rickenbacker 4005 with a Fireglo finish in very good condition. All original including the case.
There is lacquer checking throughout the finish and and a number of scuffs/marks mainly around the edges of the body and headstock. The back of the neck is fairly clean with very few marks and only light signs of play-wear. It has a lovely slim neck. The frets are in great shape with very little play wear and have been cleaned and polished in the workshop. All hardware and electronics are in fine working order. The truss rods are fully functioning and the neck is straight with fantastic action having been set up in our workshop with a set of flatwound strings. The pots are dated either late 66 or early 67. Serial GE 2675. Weight 4lbs 4.5oz. Nut width 42.4mm. Depth at 1st fret 22 mm.
The Rickenbacker 4005 is a hollow-body electric bass that was produced starting in 1965. It is similar in design and shape to the iconic Rickenbacker 360 guitar. The 4005 was never as popular as Rickenbacker solid-body basses like the 4001, and the total output of 4005 basses reflects this. Since going out of production, however, the 4005 has attracted increased attention from collectors which has greatly increased the value of these instruments. The body has elegant contours on the front with a flat back which is outlined by checkered binding. The R logo tailpiece alongside the two toaster pickups really make the bass pop aesthetically. The fingerboard is graced with full-width inlays and white binding. This really is a beautiful bass and it sounds awesome.
