SOLD Fernandes RB-80 (Rickenbacker 4001 clone)SOLD

Post by tiltbell » 13 Dec 2016, 11:15

This one's going to come back and haunt me but I have a new Ricky and this beauty has to go as I need to cover the purchase....
Early eighties Fernandes RB-80 in excellent condition, only one small ding on the headstock. All original condition with the bass cut capacitor on the bridge pickup removed for fuller tone. This is one of the best 4001 copies out there and has a beautiful neck that isn't like a log. All parts in full working order including the trussrod. Plays like magic and sounds like a Mack truck.

Dropping down to $1000 firm. Otherwise I am after a Fender 70's style Jazz (bound & blocked, maple or rosewood).

Pickup Airport West in the evening/weekend or Brooklyn during the day. No case sorry but I can put it in an old soft case if necessary. I can ship for a small fee if you like also.

You will not be disappointed, this thing is a beast!

What's the exact weight of the bass itself? (no strap, no case, etc).

Looks to be a hair over 4kg by the analogue scale.
