Hi, im selling my Rickenfaker here, not playing bass anymore with a band, plus im switching to guitar. So im thinnin the herd.

Actually not a "classic" faker, as it was built by a luthier for me.

This is a rick 4001 copy loosely based on the V63 Model.

Pickup are custom made, hardware is original rick.

I've personally redone the shielding with copper foil in order to mitigate the classic single coil buzz, plus rewired with a plug n play wire kit, so you can install your own pickups with ease if you want.

Im asking 950 EU OBO shipping excluded

If you're interested in it for a project, i can sell it as parts, we can talk about it.

Bass is located North Eastern Italy, i prefer to ship just in the EU.

Feel free to ask for pictures, sound clips, etc.

Yes it is a fairly well made bass, though it has some minor cosmetic differences if compared to a real rick. Sound wise reminds me a lot of my old 70s Rick.

I'd like to convert it to a 4000 style bass, but i cant find enough time to play, let alone having time to modify my instruments !!
