Hey Ric,

Approx. when did the 4004l get introduced. What was the reason since it is very similar to the cii?? (I own 2 cii's and I'm trying to rationalize an l)!!

thanks!

the 4004ci, 4004cii and 4004L are all different basses ... the 4004L is all maple ... that makes it colder and brighter sounding the ci has walnut body and head wings and an oil finish ... this makes the bass resonate differently ... the 4004cii is halfway between the 2 the body wings are a maple walnut maple sandwich ... and of course the 4004L has chrome and not gold hardware ... I find the 4004L is a good rock bass and the 4004ci is a good blues or jazz bass ... I believe the 4004L and the 4004ci were introduced about 1993 ...

thanks ric5,

i've seen the 4004cii go through several minor changes. mine (2)have the pickups away from the neck (easier for funk style playing) and the unfinished fretboards with walnut wings. i guess the unfinished fretboard was done on one run. picups are now against the neck for better truss rod access.

i may need an l after your explaination!
