1984 Rickenbacker 4003 Electric Bass Guitar JETGLO Black OHSC 4001 4000 Series
This Rickenbacker 660/12 TP Tom Petty signature model guitar is in excellent + condition with only a couple of tiny dings, most notably one on the lower edge of headstock face and some minute weather checking. Fireglo laquer finish is shiney and maple body and neck have some beautiful flame and birdseyes. Other than a few pick scratches on the pickguard it has no apparent playwear. Comes with its original hardshell case, unopened certificate, hang tags, warranty, owners manual, unopened polishing cloth with tools and case key. This serial #919 model was manufactured April 17, 1997. Tom Petty models were made from 1991-1998 with a total production run limited to 1000. In addition to Tom Petty's signature on the pickguard and the corticate of authenticity, this model has a lot of really cool vintage-style Rickenbacker features, including checkerboard binding, gold-tone pickguard and truss rod cover, nickle tuners, crushed pearl inlays, high output vintage re-issue "toaster" pickups and a silver tolex vintage-reissue hardshell case with blue plush lining. Neck is straight and action is comfortable with no string buzz. Pickups are balanced and controls work fine with no scratchy pots. Three way pickup switch allows for standard tone combinations and balance knob offers even more dynamic tonal ranges. Original case has no issues and still has the protective plastic film over the logo. The Tom Petty Signature models are getting harder to find and are a much more practical choice over a new standard production model.
