Midnight Blue 2009 Rickenbacker 4001c64s (consignment) SOLD

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.
