And that lefty Ibanez was made in Dec '76. A fair old age.

I just need to convince myself I don't want another one.....

very nice bass, congrat ! i really love the "jetglo" color, very classy... btw, the mapleglo that ibanez used (mine is like that) is my second choice for colors, even for real ricks... Fireglo is too flashy imho...

Here's another current copy:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...p;rd=1&rd=1

Looks like this is a re-badged Shine RK2000NT:

http://www.saein.co....ss/rk2000nt.php

- and I really think the prices for these Korean/Chinese cheapos are being pushed up by the same factors affecting the vintage copies on Ebay. This one looks not bad (Seymour Dunks, decent looking bridge, through neck) - but 400? :) 'Avin' a larf. And wtf is that headstock meant to be?

Pedals - 4...but one has 13 notes

Edit: here it is:

Given that it'll probably turn into an ad for a petrol strimmer in an hour or two, here's the page with the link too. It's about half way down:

I wonder why he advertises on French eBay ... he's a German dealer, and the bass is in Germany.

He's been trying to shift that for a while - he even signed up to BW/BT and tried to punt it there - for 495, if I remember right - :huh: Refused to answer any questions about it. Unsurprisingly, it didn't get a lot of interest.

As for what it is - I'd say either a Maya or a Greco - these being the only identified 4001s copies I've seen. Either way, it is nice. Like the way he's incorporated 20 straight profit into his postage. :)

That Gibsonbacker's interesting in that it now has the same pickup arrangement as most Ibanez 4001 copies!

Warning! Warning! Danger! Danger!

These are OFF-TOPIC and are NOT RickenFakers ... but I thought you might be interested anyway. :)

1. I like this, I like it a lot. But there's no way I can justify buying it.

http://cgi.ebay.de/Pre-Lawsuit-IBANEZ-Les-...1QQcmdZViewItem

2. I like this, I like it even more than the Ibanez Les Paul. But there's no way it will stay in my price range.

I have to go now, got some drool to wipe off the keyboard.

I really like the Triumph Bass and that copy looks pretty tasty except for the bolt-on neck...

Looks like I'll have to look around some more for an original (and the price that goes with one)

That's just fine with me - appreciating, as I do, all things vintage & Japcrap, & all things with Rickenbacker on the sharp end.

Always fancied a Triumph-alike, but remember it's a safe bet that the same thing with a name other than Ibanez on the end will likely cost half as much.

There's a guy on the RickResource board who converts standard 4003s to 5ers. Wonder if that one's real, or one of his?

Gone - listing ended as item no longer available. Price had gone through 200 with three days to go, so maybe someone offered the full 485.

And here's another Generic-enbacker cipy

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...hlink:middle:uk

Don't know what this is - the guy says it might be an Aria - don't think so, probably the first 70s brand he could think of. Makes a change from sodding Ibanez, I guess.

Something about it says "Hondo" to me - it has an indefinable air of tackiness - however the body doesn't look like ply, so it might not be.

The oxfam Arbiter finally went for 460, which would go a long way to getting a decent bass, that one could be decent, but you know what i mean, glad i didn't bid on it really, as the cylinder head gasket went on my car today, quoted 400 to get it fixed :) @;##".g cars!

P!sser about the car - bloody money pits!

Good choice about the bass - another 150 and you'd be in the ballpark for a real Rick.

460 is the looniest price I've seen one that doesn't say "Ibanez" on the end sell for. It's not even a neck-through. Anyway - it's all for charidee! :huh:
