The Rickenbacker Guitar has been quite a famous brand for over 60 years. The Beatles, The Who & The Byrds were all playing their famous guitars & basses early on in their careers for their bright tone & playability. Their most famous basses were clearly the 4000 & 4001 solid body models played by so many famous peeps. This is a very rare & last of its type, a neck thru body factory “Lefty” 1977 4001 Bass in mint all original shape. This is a special example in its glorious Mapleglo finish like Chris Squire & Paul McCartney’s 4001 basses. It is rare as Rick only made a few of these Lefty’s in the mid-1970’s w/a 3-piece neck thru body design. These beautiful neck-thru era 4001’s had a Walnut strip in between 2 maple neck halves w/a real cool appearance. This thing growls like no other. Its Rick-O-Sound Stereo jack input has its “QL” serial # dating it to December 1977. Its original pair of pots still on board are dated to 1977. This is a lightweight @ only 9 lbs. 8 oz. !!! She’s quite beautiful & truly Mint in all respects like a frickin time warp & it comes w/its ultra rare black tolex left handed hard case.
