For sale is a rare 1991 Rickenbacker 4001CS Chris Squire Signature Bass Guitar, accompanied by its original hard-shell case and certificate of authenticity. Crafted as a limited-edition series, the Rickenbacker 4001CS pays homage to Chris Squire's 1964 British model bass, with only 1,000 units produced between 1991 and 2000. This particular bass guitar holds the distinction of being number 308 out of the 1,000 made.
While this bass has been played, it remains in good condition and perfect working order. There are visible signs of use, including scratches, dings, wear on the back, chipping around the bridge, some tarnish on the hardware, and paint flaking on the bottom of the pickguard. On the overall scale, I would rate its condition as a solid 7.5 out of 10. Importantly, all components on the guitar are original, and there are no cracks, repairs, or structural issues. The neck is straight, and the original frets are in excellent condition with no signs of wear. A recent setup ensures optimal playability, with no buzzing or dead spots.
The original hard-shell case, although showing some wear and a broken latch inside, remains in very good condition and functions well. Detailed photos have been provided to give you a comprehensive view of the wear on the guitar.
If you're a fan of Chris Squire and looking for a unique, limited-edition bass with historical significance, this Rickenbacker 4001CS presents a rare opportunity. Thank you for your interest.
