Comments Rickenbacker instruments are distinctive and immediately identifiable, visually and sonically. Rickenbacker introduced the 4001 bass in 1961 and produced until 1986 except for 1966 and 1967. It’s been replaced by the 4003 bass. While the Fender Precision Bass holds the record for the most recordings, the Rickenbacker 4001 bass provides a bright punchy sound that comes right to the front of the mix. It’s hard to miss it on a recording or stage. This 1973 Rickenbacker 4001 Bass is in good shape and great playing condition.
