I am in love with this bass! Is there any chance I could get one exactly like it and what would be the price? Thank you.

-At first, you need a early 70´is 4001 with skunk stripe. (Therefor, the next problem is the "crushed-pearl inlays", of which I´m not sure "Jingle-Jangle" or "Dale fortune", those who are qualified luthiers regarding Ricks and, could reproduce.)
-He (jingle jangle, I beleive) did the restauration/made this bass. You can contact him by using the "members" section of the forum.

Both Dale and I can do "crushed pearl" that is very close to the old stuff.

"I believe in miracles/Where are you from/You sexy thing"... Yes, a lovingly restored lovely 4001. Hey, is that a post-mid'73 bridge/tailpiece assembly with a period-accurate ('72) saddle block on it?

When I said exactly like that one I just meant that lilac/brown sunburst finish with checkerboard binding and pearlescent looking pickguard on let's say a new 4003 mapleglo. I'm not worried about the skunk stripe, toaster pickup or the fret markers.
Is it possible to estimate a price quote or was that just a one-off job?

Crazyrick, it is a June 1972 that was originally Mapleglo. I had (poorly) attempted to refinish it myself in 1975, but the restoration you see was done by Jingle Jangle this past summer. It is not completely original. The treble pickup was missing altogether and the tailpiece chrome was flaking off. I replaced the tailpiece with a modern one, had a new high-gain treble pickup installed a few years ago. The neckwork (rebinding and refretting) was done by Ted Staberow. He also added walnut headwings (not original to '72s) at my request. JJ did the body binding, prep, color, clearcoats, and buffing. For a complete redo such as this, you're looking at between 1 and 2 Gs.

Kee-rect. Paul, you get those nuts or did they get caught up in Christmas rush at the PO?
