If you need trussrods they are available from Randy Wood Custom Guitars located in Bloomingdale, Georgia. I got some in Nov/10 and they were $125 plus $15 shipping to Canada. They make them and fit just fine.

While I'm here wondering if the pickup selector switch, part # 08834, listed in the Boutique on this site could be used as a replacement on my 1970 Rick bass model 4001?

Yep!

Rather than dowl and redrill the tuner post holes, what I would do is get a set of Schaller BML tuners. They look just like the new tuners from RIC, but should have a tuner post and ferrule that will fit the existing holes correctly. You'll still have to dowell the tuner screw holes, but that's no big deal. I wouldn't bother rewinding a set of new 4003 pickups. Just use 'em as is, but if you want the original spec pickups, they turn up on Ebay quite often.
