1977 Greco PMB-800 Bass (Rickenbacker 4001) (w/ OHSC)

An absolutely sublime offering from Fujigen era Greco, this neck through monster has all the qualities you love about 4001s with none of the ridiculous double ups (we're looking at you, truss rods and jack sockets...) that Rickenbacker decided to put in their instruments. Full 34" scale, lacquered rosewood on maple neck with maple wings. This one is a real classy broad, she's finished in piano black with checkerboard binding and nickel plated hardware with just the right amount of patina you'd expect from an instrument of this vintage.

This one has had a nice overhaul with some tasteful upgrades to replace some parts which weren't functioning. Switchcraft jack socket, CTS pots and new scratchplate screws to keep your tone sharp and hold things in place. And what a tone it is. The original Maxon single coils deliver inimitable 70s juiciness with absolutely thick low end, perfect mid range punch and articulate highs. We've also given it a professional fret dress and setup and make no mistake, the neck and action on this thing will make you not want to put it down. We struggled to, that's for sure.

Overall condition is very good. This bass was certainly played and has signs of playwear, patina and some chips and dents, but all is honest. Comes with it's original hard shell case and bridge cover (currently not installed).
