1980 Rickenbacker 4001S, Jetglo finish, all original and complete including the case. The 4001S was basically the down-trimmed 4000 bass with an added pickup. Rickenbacker originally referred to it as 4000+1. The last year of official production was 1981. In 1982 it was superseded by the 4003. From about 1972 until the end, the 4001S was built as a set-neck into a 2 piece body, in common with the single-pickup 4000 of that period. The 4001S had a three piece neck, with the dark shedua strip down the middle. Unlike the 4003 this bass has no body or neck binding and has dot inlays. These basses are rare, especially in this condition. This bass is ideal for a collector or player. Rickenbacker basses are famous for their ringing sustain, treble punch and solid underlying bass.

It's in fantastic condition with only very light wear. Fully set up by my technician with a set of round wound strings. Nut width: 1.643". Weight:8lbs 12oz. Serial:TK4530.
