Incredibly rare first year 1991 Rickenbacker 4001CS Chris Squire Limited Edition Signature Bass. The first year models are the most sought after and feature a hand rubbed finish different from the subsequent years. This is the best condition example in the world and is complete with hand signed certificate. The Chris Squire 4001CS is widely accepted as the ultimate Rickenbacker bass...and this is the very best one available for sale in the world. England received different 4001 basses than the American market. The Brits preferred dot inlays and didn't care for a stereo output, so the features you see on the bass are derived from what was originally made available to the British market. The fretboard and headstock wings are made of exotic African Vermilion. Chris Squire of YES fame is regarded as one of the most influential electric bass players in the world and is often cited by today's best players as a major influence that helped shape their sound and technique. If you want the best example of one of the most sought after investment basses, you are looing at it. This is the price of a new Rolex watch, but far more fun and significantly more interesting for your friends and guests to look at. This is functional art at its finest.
