Comments Rickenbacker basses (and guitars) have always been sought after, but the company has never tried to grow to the size of Fender or Gibson, intstead keeping their production in their plant and doing a lot of hand work. This example, unlike many, is in original condition; many of these basses were modified to accept heavier bridges.
