Rickenbacker Model 4000


This early example of Rickenbacker’s foray into the world of electric bass guitars is the template on which the 4001/4003 line of basses would be built, with only a few fundamental structural changes from 1961 through the present day. Note the neck-through-body with Walnut headstock wings, magnetic horseshoe pickup, over-sized ½” diameter tuning pegs with “Elephant ear” tuning machines, w/b/w nut, metal V/T knobs and tug bar. This example has its original bridge cover with built-in mute. OHSC.
