The Rickenbacker 4001 is one of the most interesting basses ever. Very rare these days are many clean originals. This is a wonderful Fireglo finished example w/a maple neck-thru design w/nicely figured maple body halves w/all the right stuff: triangle crushed pearl inlays, checkerboard binding, toaster pickup, large headstock w/walnut wings & the rarest item, its clear lucite thumb rest. Its white’gard is clean as are its Grover tuners. Its serial # plate is slightly rusty wearing its “KI” code that dates to September 1971 & its pots codes date to the 30th week of 1970. Overall she’s an exceptionally clean 100% original 4001 w/stunning looks & great playability & comes in a nice period Fender hard case.
