Original Rickenbacker Model 4001 Made in USA Bass Serial # pictured with QJ 4550 prefix indicates Sept 1977 production date. Bass is totally playable, has good intonation. Neck is straight, no twists. Original bridge has been replaced by a BADASS, this is not a mod but a repair. The original bridges lift off if you use hi tension round wounds. (these basses were designed for flats) So the original bridge was lifting off. Someone replaced it with a badass, It plays just as good (possibly better) than the orignal. They sell the original style bridge on ebay, or you can probably go to Ric in Santa Ana. I am selling it as is for a functional playable bass. If you wanted to make it a collectors item replaceing the bridge with original would make it worth more. It has been checked out by a reputable local luthier (Fretworks), and it was deemed to be fully functional, and there is no reason to change the bridge if you just want to play it.
The neck is straight, and is playing good with close action all the way to the 22nd fret as pictured it has natural lacquer wear in the first position from haveing been played over the years. It has significant buckrash on the back but none of it penetrates the original lacquer finish. There are wear marks along the bottom as well. Comes with Hardshell Case, looks to be original, definately older model case but I cant say for sure.
