‼️Reduced‼️ Rickenbacker 4001S Bass FireGlo, 1973

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Rickenbacker 4001S bass, built from 1964 to 1985, was based on the model 4000, added a neck pickup and was intended for export sales. Generally plainer than the standard 4001, this bass is harder to find in older versions.

Most of the Rickenbacker 4001S Bass models were finished in solid colours – we’ve had a few in black – and finishes like this FireGlo are rare.   The S in the model name usually indicates that this is a set neck model, rather than a neck through, however some 4001S models were built as neck-through. 

This Rickenbacker 4001S Bass FireGlo dates to February of 1973 and was built, like all other Rics, at Rickenbacker’s facility in Santa Ana, California. It has clearly been played and used as intended, and is bright, resonant and crisp.  It has been refretted and plays cleanly and fast. The pickguard has been touched up and the saddles are somewhat worn.

A non-original hard shell case is included.
