Rickenbacker 4001 Bass Fireglo, 1975

Rickenbacker 4001 Bass Fireglo, 1975

One of the iconic rock basses, the Rickenbacker 4001 bass was built as a two-pickup version of the 4000 bass, adding a neck pickup to the distinctive Cresting Wave body design by German luthier and designer Roger Rossmeisl. Built from 1961 to somewhere between 1983 and 1985 when it was replaced by the 4003 bass, the Rickenbacker 4001 bass features a Maple body and through-body Maple neck, with a bound and finished Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird V Reissue Vintage Sunburst, 2006

 Introduced in 1963, the Gibson Firebird V with its neck-through design was a radical departure from most of the guitars available at the time. The original models were referred to as ‘Reverse’ as the offset body used the opposite orientation as most guitar bodies, particularly Fender’s then-new Offset-body Jazzmaster and Jaguar.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 620 MapleGlo, 2012

Here we have a very clean, great condition Rickenbacker 620 in MapleGlo finish (gloss natural), dated to late March of 2012 in Santa Ana, California. The Rickenbacker 620 was introduced in 1974 and its roots draw from the very late 1950’s model 450, a solidbody featuring the Cresting Wave body shape designed by Roger Rossmeisl. Construction of the Rickenbacker 620 is simple, with a through-neck design using Maple for the two-piece neck and body wings, and Indian Rosewood for the bound fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌ Alembic Spoiler Bass 4-String Natural, 1983

❌SOLD❌ Alembic Spoiler Bass 4-String Natural, 1983

Here is a rarity – an Alembic Spoiler 4-string bass, built during 1983 in Santa Rosa, California, with Maple neck-through construction, low-impedance pickups and active circuitry. Alembic, founded in early 1969 as an audio consulting firm – the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane were key early clients – introduced the use of active electronics and low-impedance pickups in musical instruments. Alembic guitars and basses, being fully hand-made of top quality materials and with parts like the pickups, brass nuts, bridges and tailpieces being built in-house, tended to be expensive and so were used primarily by top touring and recording artists.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Firebird Cherry, 2019 NOS

Built at the Gibson Nashville plant, the new Gibson Firebird closely – but not entirely – follows the original construction concepts of the first Firebirds. Most importantly, this is a neck-through design, with the neck and the body built up of a total of five pieces of Mahogany over their length, and four Walnut strips bracketing the center sections. This multi-piece construction is used to provide extra stability over the long section.
