Bass L/H - $1 (Springdale)

12345678910111213141516171819

condition: like new
make / manufacturer: RICKENBACKER
model name / number: 4001 V-63 / YK 2067

ALL NEW Hi-Def. Pictures! Save & ZOOM-up!

VERY Rare & Personally Signed: Vintage Rickenbacker 4001 V-63! LEFT HANDED & excellent+ condition! Classic Fireglo lacquer finish.

Serial # YK 2067, 1985.
The V-63 (Vintage RE-issue 1963) 4001 series was discontinued 20+ years ago, not many around.
All original Rickenbacker equipment, maple body & gloss varnished Vermillion Rosewood fretboard.

Classic Rickenbacker tones & sounds:
the punchy bridge pickup & piano-like "Toaster" neck pickup.
Plays & feels WONDERFUL, perfect balance, neck & intonation is sweet.

Personally signed by the late / great CHRIS SQUIRE, of YES, in 1994 on the "TALK" tour. I met him back stage thru some friends in the YES tribute band "Fragile".
HE took it from me and said:
"Why . . it's BACKWARDS!!", in his charming & jovial way,
after my "Wayne's World" presentation of "I'm NOT worthy . . "
His sig. has faded a bit, but I have a closeup picture of it when it was fresh!
This bass listed @ $3,289 + 15% for left handed = $3,782

I'm disabled w/ inoperable neck & back issues & can't work, or play anymore except on the couch.
I'll be selling off all my other guitars, amps & basses soon, also.
RIC hard-shell-case included.

The "MAGIC" happens when you play Am7 chord from "Silent Wings", ABOVE the 12th fret.
NO OTHER bass get's that sound. PERIOD!
Fresh set of Swing-bass ROTOSOUNDS JUST INSTALLED.

I've had / been playing this bass since 1992, I will miss it.
I'd LIKE $3,500 TO LET THIS BABY GO . .

Ideal, VINTAGE bass for another lefty player. NOT interested in trades or dealers, need to downsize my arsenal before I move.

Other: V-63, 4001s on E-bay & elsewhere: NONE are as clean as this & NONE were signed by the "Schindreleria Prima Taurus"

It's THAT SWEET, a Bass rock Bazooka!

CA$H Only: NOT interested in swapping for anyone else's stuff,
I need to DOWNSIZE & liquidate B4 I move next year.

Make me an OFFER I can't refuse.
