This is a 2014 Laredo I bought last year.
I fully intended on keeping it. But some serious major household and auto expenses have come crashing down on me which regretfully leads me to this sale.
The 4004L has that great contouring, and their low loss circuit which, when coupled with Rickenbacker's latest high output humbucking pickups, delivering a distinctive loud and clear sound.
I didn't like the idea of a pick up selector. It was too stark and not nearly as versatile as it should be.
So I immediatly decided to perform a modification to the bass. Using 100% Rickenbacker parts,
I replaced the 3 position pickup selector with another volume pot.
The bass now has that
same set up we've all come to love on the good old Fender Jazz Basses!
Having independant volume controls enables you to run the pickups on their own volume pot thereby giving you infinitely more output options whether it be to achieve better output balance or to accentuate pickups in either position.
This is what makes this bass uniquely different from THE OTHER Laredos.
The only thing standing between this bass being labeled MINT is a small chip in the clear coat finish near the strap button. It can be easily filled and smoothed out. (See Photo.)
