2050 El Dorado in poor condition but all original, listed as "70's 3001", $500 starting bid.

Could look much better with some Scratch-X and Zymol. Good deal if it stays near this price. The seller says "neck is twisted a little?"

When it's clean and shiny (Catalog picture) this is the only 2000/3000 Series bass that I find attractive.



Sold for $462

That sounds uncharacteristically cheap...?

I suspect someone got a real bargain, unless that neck is worse off than I think and can't be corrected with a proper TR adjustment.

It's a shame that the shipping cost is so high.  ;)

Has any 4002 sold for over 10K?

You know it's my favorite RIC color. This one is lovely but "the truss rod is minimally adjustable so the bass plays best with light gauge strings" - sign of an unhealthy neck, I don't know if that's a $4K bass.

'67 4005 Azureglo, restored by Paul Wilczynski. $7,950

The body and neck are original, basically everything else is new, including the fretboard and frets. Paul W installed a modern double-action truss rod.
