Hi all,

New to the site here, but have trolled the forums a bit reading. According to my serial number I have a 1974 4001 model Ric bass. When I bought it - it had no laquer finish and was stuffed in a drummer's garage. I had it cleaned up and was lucky there was nothing wrong with it - and had it refinished and used it for several years.

At the time I bought it, it had NO color. Just the natural wood. When I had it refinished I JUST had it finished since I had no clue what or even IF it had color originally. According to this site there WAS no natural wood finish for the '74 model.

My question to you all is there any possible way to find out what the original color could have been? Any info sources out there for me to check out?

Thanks for any help!
Michele

Mapleglo (natural wood with a clear coat) was available in 1974. If your bass was stripped or sanded down, I doubt the person doing it would have taken the time to go into the control cavities. If you don't see any paint in the cavaties, your bass was most likely Mapleglo out of the factory.

Too late---it is on its way to Florida---I hated to let it go.
