Cosmetic Condition: Tis the season for this Autumnglo 4001! This ’78 Ric bass is ultra sweet and looks stunning. The top of the body has a deep warm autumnglo finish that is in good shape. The top of the body has several nicks and dents and some play wear. The sides have some edge wear and a mild scratch on the treble side. There is some buckle rash and edge wear on the back that has worn through the finish. The neck has many dents in it, particularly on frets 1–5. The headstock is structurally sound and looking great with some mild edge wear. Seasons change, but this 4001 will always rock.
