⚌Reduced‼  Rickenbacker 4003SPC Tuxedo White Star Bass, 1987

Here is a limited edition rarity from 1987 – a Rickenbacker 4003 Tuxedo White Star bass, one of approximately 120 built during that year; some reports say 100 were built. The model 4003 bass was introduced in 1979 to improve the model 4001 and in particular to strengthen the dual truss rods for use with round wound strings. The Rickenbacker 4003 Tuxedo or White Star bass is based closely on the 4003 and was built only during 1987.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4001FL Fretless Maple Glo 1978

❌SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 4001FL Fretless Maple Glo 1978

Only available as a special order during the 1960s and based closely on the base 4001  model, the Rickenbacker 4001FL was offered from 1968 until the 4001 was discontinued in 1989. The key differences between the 4001 and the Rickenbacker 4001FL are in the fingerboard and binding. Naturally, the bound Padouk fingerboard is fretless, but is not a modified fretted board. Some builders will use a fretted board, filling the slots with veneer, giving visible markings an an aid to intonation.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4003 Bass Natural Refinish, 1982

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker 4003 Bass Natural Refinish,  1982

Introduced in 1979 as an update to the 4001 model, the Rickenbacker 4003 Bass and its sisters have been a distinctive alternative to the ‘ordinary’ basses available. Here we are looking at a great deal on a Rickenbacker 4003 Bass, built during November of 1982 at the Rick plant in Santa Ana, California. It has been refinished in Natural, and the new finish has a fair amount of wear. During the refinish process, the top contours were rounded slightly, which probably makes the bass a bit more comfortable to play.

❌ SOLD❌  Rickenbacker 660/12 Solidbody Electric 12 Natural Maple, 2009

Introduced in 1998, the Rickenbacker 660-12 is a solidbody, compact electric 12 string guitar with Rickenbacker’s traditional ‘Cresting Wave’ body design. This model is very similar to the 620, but uses higher graded, more figured woods, ‘Toaster Top’ vintage style pickups, and a squared tailpiece rather than the ‘R’ two-section tailpiece. Rickenbacker has delivered many firsts over its long history.

❌SOLD❌ 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.

The Rickenbacker Electro D12 is a rare model. Many of Rickenbacker’s multineck steels were 8-strings per neck, and the D12 has six; the doubleneck with a total of 12 strings gives it its name. Its better known sibling is the D16, with two necks of eight strings each. From their first production in 1940, the Electro D and T models used a combination of a cast metal body and a Bakelite neck, with Lucite fingerboards.
