Vintage 1980 Rickenbacker 4001 w/ Badass Bridge
This bass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-10)
Price : US $1,238.
Here's a vintage Mapleglo Rickenbacker 4001 manufactured in February of 1980. Everything on it is original except the bridge. The previous owner replaced the stock bridge with a Leo Quan Badass Bass II bridge for increased sustain and tone. Legendary bassist Geddy Lee from Rush made the same modification to his Rickenbacker. The previous owner also removed the bridge pickup cover. I will include the original Dunlop Strap Locks that came with the bass. Given it's age, the condition on this beauty is excellent. The back of the body has some buckle rash which I tried capturing in the photos, but it's nothing too noticable. The lower horn has a dent on it that was there from the previous owner. The neck also has a dent on it. There are no major problems on the bass, and all the electronics work perfectly and sound amazing. The neck has absolutely no bow in it, the fretboard is in perfect condition, and the intonation is excellent. I have the original Rickenbacker case, which has some scuffs and scratches on it. The clasps are slightly rusted but work fine. I'm always amazed by how solid the case is. Don't miss out on this opportunity to get an amazing instrument that is well known as a classic music icon.
