  1. I used to own a 1979 Rickenbacker 4001 bass (my first bass!) and stupidly sold it in my callow youth. Now it would probably be worth $1500, and they run $1800-$2000 new. I've always wanted to make a copy for my own use. Rick is one of the few companies that seems to really ruthlessly pursue copyright on the design. I get a kick out of the "Chickenbacker" bass copies available through various shady outlets (Trade Tang, Alibaba Imports, etc). The name of the companies that sell them change every couple of months, must be how they stay ahead of Rickenbacker's lawyers, not that the Chinese give a hoot about trademarks or patents anyway. I wonder if they would bother to pursue a single one-time builder (maybe me) making a copy?
