Rickenbacker 4003 Bass
The Rickenbacker 4003 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor and updates to the legendary 4001 and has become Rickenbacker’s most popular bass model to date.
Famous for its resonating sustain, crystal clear trebles and solid fundamental low-end, the Rickenbacker 4003 features an instantly recognisable curved body design, which has remained a consistent between the 4001 and 4003 models. The body is emphasised by its delicate binding, notable triangular fret board inlays and through-neck construction.
In the electronics department, the 4003 features a stereo output and high output single-coil pickups, providing wide response range and brilliant clarity. The vintage tone selector/toggle switch activates a capacitor in the treble pickup circuit to emphasise the high end.
Rickenbacker 4003S Bass
The Rickenbacker 4003S delivers all of that celebrated, traditional Rickenbacker 4003 bass tone in a slightly different format, proffered by some Ricky players.
The 4003S comes standard with dot inlays and no binding, yet retaining the 4003’s cherished traditional look. Some agree that it’s rounded edges (and lack of binding) make it more comfortable than the 4003 model.
The 4003S version comes with the improved dual truss rod system offering yet more of the prominent Rickenbacker sustain. The 4003S features a more straightforward single instrument output, as opposed to the 4003’s stereo output. The “Rick-O-Sound” output being designed for use with a stereo equipped amplifiers.
