This bass is stunning it brings the old with the new. This Rickenbacker bass has been refinished and restored.
The Ric has had a refinish to almost a Chris Squire colour, like a creamy white. The paintwork is immaculate and new. The tuners that have been installed are Rickenbacker genuine tuners the same as a 4003. They are brand new.
The truss rod system operates perfectly and the bass has just had a setup and intonation done. The action is quite low. The neck is perfectly straight and the frets have been cleaned up and lots of life on them, the electronics all work perfectly.
On the horn of the guitar previous owner had another strap bolt installed. The hole is there but can be shipped with an extra strap button if requested.
The neck pickup is a toaster pickup and the bridge being Seymor Duncan SRB 1B Rickenbacker replacement. These pickups are superb and I view them as a better tone. The tonal balance and variation with the Toaster and the Seymor is outstanding.
It comes complete with an original Rickenbacker Tailpiece and Bridge as fitted to today’s Ric basses
New strings have just been fitted 45-105 Rotosounds
Comes with a brand new Rickenbacker Left Handed hard case from Rickenbacker Vintage Range. As you know the guitar and also this hard case are rare to see.
This is Ric bass has a 40-year-old body that has been updated.
It would look beautiful from a gig to TV production
It’s a very cool looking bass that packs a punch.
There are no issues with the bass at all and a view pre purchase is welcome.
