          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 have a Jetglo black, '73 4001 (right-handed). When I bought it back in '86, it's original case was slightly thicker, and the velvet lining inside was purple, without too much padding. Also, the storage compartment was towards the 'hinge' side of the case. Anyways, I had it stored at a friend's house for a few years, but it got musty, and 1 one of the 3 clasps had broken off. Oh, well.. I'm sentimental, and I hated to replace it, but I'm glad I did! The 2-tone silver/ black exterior finish looks great, as does the Rick nameplate near the handle. The 2 'outer' clasps (of the 3) have locks. 2 keys are provided in the storage compartment, which, is front left, closest to the side that opens. The Blue Velvet lining inside looks awesome, and is padded well. My beloved 4001 fits like a glove. Opening it up reminds me of the intro/ outro to the movie 'Blue Velvet'- every time.. Get this case if you have to replace the case for your 4001. *Heads Up: I'm told the universal SKB cases don't fit the 4001..

          An almost perfect Christmas gift

          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.

          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.

              Does not fit the 4005 hollow body Rick bass, it too short and too skinny. Seems like a great case but did not fit my guitar.

              Comments about Rickenbacker 94550 Vintage Bass Case for 4000:

              I have one of these cases, it came with my bass. It's been a great solid and secure case for the 12 years I've owned it. I came home one day to find that my dog had actually aten trough it! Don't worry the rick inside was fine... I thought I'd see if a new one was available to buy. I never thought any guitar case could cost so bloody much! Over 300 dollars in my country's currency, totally out of range for a musician. Guess I'll have to settle for some crappy unmatching case :(

              Vintage Rickenbacker Case

              This vintage case fits my 1979 4001 azureglo perfectly. The blue inside lining feels like velvet, just like a guitar's bed should be. I thought the case was a little on the high side, as far as price, but you shouldn't skimp on the carrier of your baby.

              I owned the same case for a 4001 bass, and it is tough enough to give the right protection. Also, the bass guitar fits inside perfectly. Has a very durable construction and look, great for a vintage style case.
