So, I purchased a 1976 Rickenbacker 4001 used from a guy in 1982. Why? Because I was 17 and a HUGE Rush fan! I loved it! Some minor problems but it was great.

In March of 1986, I bought a brand new Fender Jazz Bass Special. It quickly became my main bass. The guitar player in my band was interested in refinishing my Rick. Since I really wasn't playing it much and being young, I said sure. Needless to say, my Rick turned into an 1980's horror show!

Fast forward 26 years. My Fender was still my main bass, but I always had regret over the condition of my Rick and that it just sat in a closet, untouched! So, living in NJ I was fortunate enough to find a store in Lindenwold called "Pick of the Ricks". I wanted them to restore my Rick to it's original glory.

Here you go! Check out my new, main bass!

Welcome to the forum. Pick Of The Ricks is my favorite place to buy a Rick or whatever else they sell. Congrats on the new Rick! JETGLO ROCKS! 8-)
