    Default Value of Refinished Rickenbach Bass

    My buddy is looking into buying a 1972 Rick 4001 bass. It has been pro refinned to natural, originally was Jet Glow Black. Everything else is all original. Grover tuners, checkered binding, toaster neck pup, split bridge, plexi trc, no extra routing. He is considering buying it from a dealer in California, but he lives in TN. the dealer wants about $3000.00. Is this too much? What is the fair price to expect to pay for this bass?? I told him I would post the question and see what I could find out since he is not a member and doesn't get on line much.

    I understand his concern ...
    I'd search out some Rickenbacker sites and do some research.
    Maybe join a few Rickenbacker forums and run it by them.
