Canadian Tech-Metallers Neck Of The Woods tweeted us this shot yesterday of the gorgeous Rickenbacker 4001 they were able to use on their recent demo. Setup, and I quote, in "Drop C tuning thru a Hiwatt 50 watt head. Extra clank!!"
Check out their Bandcamp page to hear that beautiful clanking sound in action.
Holy eff, this c.’73 Rickenbacker 4001 is the lightest, most strident-sounding Ric Bass I’ve ever played. Worn-in, perfectly set up and with a potent sound, I can’t imagine this one’s going to last long. For sale soon! OMG indeed… #guitar #bass #vintage #rickenbacker #4001 #seattle #vintageguitar (at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar)
