You are looking at one of the rarest Rickenbacker Custom Color Finishes available on a Rickenbacker 4003 Bass Guitar.

This Bass Guitar is in absolute Mint "LIKE NEW" untouched Condition. It looks no different than the day it left the Rickenbacker factory almost 20 years ago!

YES, this one has the highly coveted AMBER FIREGLO "Color of The Year", "COY" for short, Custom Finish that Rickenbacker only made available on a VERY SELECT FEW of their 4000 series basses for 2006. Due to back-order fulfillment at the time, some of the AFG instruments were not completed until the following year, 2007.

Please do not confuse THIS Amber Fireglo Custom Limited Finish with the standard production Fireglo finish that Rickenbacker has been producing every year since the company started. There is a HUGE difference.

This AFG finish is very unique and in my opinion, the most outstanding and beautiful of all Rickenbacker finishes. The finish on this one is a gorgeous shade of Orange fading into a Golden Yellow hue from the outer portions to the inner areas. The edges on this bass are amazing the way the Orange morphs into that Golden Yellow tint. What really sets things off and makes this bass pop is the amazingly stunning Golden Yellow Vintage Ageing process that Rickenbacker used on the binding on this limited run of these Amber Fireglo instruments. They also used a specialized formulated proprietary vintage tint in the clear conversion mix on the fretboard. It looks incredible, to say the least. The Artisan at Rickenbacker that was responsible for the build and paint work on this instrument, was obviously, a very experienced professional luthier. Not only does the bass look other worldly, it also plays and sounds wonderful; exactly what you expect with a Rickenbacker Bass. I'm sure you know the players that made these basses famous throughout the years. Believe me when I tell you, all those famous tones are on tap with this Bass.

Words and photographs cannot properly articulate how exquisite this piece really is. This is Master Craftsmanship at its finest! I have owned many Rickenbacker instruments over the years and I can say with confidence, this is perhaps the most beautiful finish I have ever seen on any Rickenbacker. The included photos are plenty nice, but this piece is absolutely drop dead stunning in person! It's hard to look away from it, seriously. It is a beautiful work of art!

As you can see in the photos, the original Hard Shell case is included and is also in Mint "Like New" condition. Of course, all factory documentation is also present.

I doubt you will find another Limited Run Amber Fireglo 4003AFG available in any condition, due to the scarcity of this Model in this Finish. I assure you, you won't find one in the Like New Factory Fresh Condition that this piece is in!

If you are a Ric Collector, Player, or Connoisseur, why not treat yourself?

Thank you for your interest!
