      Comments about Rickenbacker 94550 Vintage Bass Case for 4000:

      I have a 1973 Rick 4001 and after 42 years, the case had to be retired. I looked around and did not like any of the universal cases I found. Most had too much room or didn't fit. I finally took the plunge on this one and wow, it's great! The bass fits snuggly in the case without any movement. The only thing I noticed is, I have strap locks and it's so snug that I have to remove my strap. No big deal, that's what the compartment is for.

        It's hard to find a proper Rickenbacker case, but this is it. My original case from '84 had gotten damaged, and I lived with it a long time before finally biting the bullet and getting a replacement. It's not cheap, but is high quality and affords great protection for your Ric. Looks great too. I was able to use a 20% off coupon, so it was a bargain at that price.

          I bought this case for a recently acquired RIC Model 4000 Fireglo Bass from 1979, just like my very first RIC bass in 1975 - a vintage case for an almost vintage bass (missed it by 6+ years).

            Gave it 5 Stars because it is a Rick Bass case, which is just about the only case that will work for Ricks. However, my bass is left-handed, and the case is for a righty. I did call MF, before I bought, and the sales rep wasn't sure, thought it was symmetrical, so I took the chance. Finally have a cardboard box that will fit it, and will return it, and hope MF can get me a lefty case.

            An almost perfect Christmas gift

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about Rickenbacker 94550 Vintage Bass Case for 4000:

            This case was exactly what my husband wanted for Christmas, since he recently had his 1969 Rickenbacker bass restored. He never owned an original case and the ancient Fender case he always used is falling apart. Musician's Friend shipped the case quickly, but unfortunately there was nothing to protect the handle inside the box. UPS managed to bend the heck out of it on the trip. The replacement is on the way, but it was a bit of a downer when my husband opened it and saw the damage. Hope it goes better with the next shipment.

            Comments about Rickenbacker 94550 Vintage Bass Case for 4000:

            The classic Rickenbacker case by G&G. The 'MF' pricing makes it a great value for the money.
            Stylish and well made, my 4003 'SnoGlow' fits perfectly into the case with minimal movement allowed. Of course, the all white bass looks spectacular, bathed in the blue interior. The case is well padded.

            The photos used here on the MF site are printed backwards. The case arrives as standard, with the accessory case on the 'latch' front left side as normal.
            While alignment of the closed case halves is perfect, the latches open overly easy, leaving the impression they would open, if inadvertently bumped. The bass resides in the house, or at best, light travel only. When not be played I store each bass in their cases.
            If I was still gigging, the original plastic SKB style RIC case would be sturdier, and most likely offer better overall protection and has better, and more latches.

            Lastly, the accessory compartment, while large is separated in the middle with a stiffener that divides the compartment into two halves. The compartment is 1.5 inches high. As such, I cannot place my 'Brookwood Leather' vintage style strap into the compartment. The stiffener is most likely structural, it makes for too small a compartment when compared to say a Fender Jazz, or Lakland, case.
            I have been playing for 40 years, so the case has more sentiment value than practical. It depends on your needs and desired appearances.
            I hope this helps.

            I own quite a few Rickenbacker Bass Guitars and over the years some of the cases are beat... the guitars are protected and that's all that matters to me.
