|Comments||The 4001 bass was introduced in 1961. It was replaced in 1986 by the 4003, but in 2001 the 4001 CS was introduced. This was a reproduction of Paul McCartney’s bass, and featured a reshaped body and a zero fret on an unfinished fingerboard.
This Midnight Blue 2009 Rickenbacker 4001c64s is one of only four in this particular colour – there are two more in satin. It’s in excellent condition.
