Description

This is the find of a “Lefty” bass players lifetime !, this gorgeous specimen is the only 4005 hollow bodied 6 String Bass ever made in a Left Handed version over a period of 4 years from 1965 thru 1968, records show they made between 4-6 ever in right handed form, its Forego finish is nothing short of stunning & shows only the slightest wear, its carved maple top has a ton of grain like no other example we have seen, its 2-piece maple back has some nice quilty grain & colorful figuring & is complimented by its perfect checkerboard binding, its fingerboard exhibits no wear & its crushed pearl inlays are sparkling like its new, its 6 open back tuners make its headstock look huge & its upside down Rickenbacker truss rod logo cover is to die for, its 2 “Toaster” pickups are punchy & funky, its single layer White pickgard is as clean as the rest including its Lucite thumb rest & 5 chrome capped knobs, this is surely the only example of an all original 4005/6 Lefty w/serial # HC designating it was made March 1968 that we have seen ever, it is truly “Near Mint” & certainly museum quality & we do not use those terms lightly, it comes with its original Silver Tolex/Blue lined hard case.
