Rickenbacker 4001 BurgundyGlo 1980

A bass that needs little introduction, this 1980 Rickenbacker 4001 Burgundy Glo is a heavy king. The 4001 is a bass for slicing through your band while underpinning it at the same time. We get our mitts on as many as we can owing to their lengthy construction process, but this one is from 1980 (good year!), and it's keeping it real. Originally designed for use with flatwound strings, the thru-neck Maple-bodied 4001 has a 33.5" scale, with a Walnut strip running the full length of the instrument. 20 frets sit neatly in that Maple neck, which is topped with a bound Padouk fretboard with triangular inlays (Jackson fans would call them sharkfins). The cresting wave headstock and body horns keep this wine-coloured blaster in perfect balance, which is comforting when you're in charge of the power that comes from those two high-octane single coils. Controlled by indepedent volume and tones with a three way switch, this particular Rick has pots from 1979, though as the serial dates to July 1980 and nothing is amiss we're confident this smooth operator left the factory as it is now. The bridge is a high-mass Rick original complete with mutes, and the whole bass has been carefully looked after with typical yellowing but no cracking on the binding. Marvelously kept and capable of destroying your whole band (and the support) if you wish, this is a quality Cabernet! Now protected by a three year warranty with our funny looking techs, this 1980 Rickenbacker 4001 Burgundy Glo is available at Wunjos with a hardcase as standard.
