Shaftesbury 4001 Rickenbacker Copy

This guitar was built around 1978, these are great quality guitars as they are very well made. The paint finish is good and the colour is authentic. This came to me as the frets were in need of dressing and shaping.  The intonation was way out so that had to be fixed too.  After a truss rod adjustment and lowering of the bridge it is now an excellent playing bass with a great sound.

For more background on Shaftesbury, see the Dave Hill review in the Famous Frets section.

  1. Hi Alan, really sorry for the delay in replying. I’ve been doing some work for Guitarist Magazine and got totally sidetracked. Thanks for your enquiry but I’m afraid the bass isn’t for sale. Regards Steve
