Rickenbacker 4001 Bass JetGlo Black, 1973

Rickenbacker 4001 Bass JetGlo Black, 1973

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 1986 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.   Rickenbacker’s rosewoods tend to be quite light coloured, almost towards the colour tones of other species such as Pau Ferro.

❌ SOLD ❌ Rickenbacker 4003S Bass JetGlo, 2016

The Rickenbacker 4003 Bass is one of the most distinctive instruments. For some people, it evokes Chris Squire, for others McCartney, and for others…. Lemmy. Designed in the mid 1950’s by Roger Rossmeisl as a counterpoint to the highly successful Fender bass, the 4003 uses a ‘Cresting Wave’ body shape.

❌ SOLD ❌ Rickenbacker 4004Cii Cheyenne Bass FireGlo, 2008

The Rickenbacker 4004Cii is a bass we don’t see very often. Built using largely American farm-grown sustainable woods, this bass uses a body of Maple with Walnut core, and an Eastern Maple neck with a Bubinga fingerboard, running the length of the instrument. The 4004Cii Cheyenne uses the classic Cresting Wave body shape originally designed by Roger Rossmeisl in the late 1950’s, and still vibrant and evocative today.
