A Modern Day Icon
Easily one of the most iconic and recognisable bass guitars ever made, the Rickenbacker 4003 been used by some of the music industry's most influential names in bass playing.
Having helped shape the sound of many peoples favourite music over the decades, it's no surprise that the 4003 remains so popular to this day.
In addition to this, thanks to its slim Maple neck and uniquely-shaped body, the Rickenbacker 4003 offers a surprisingly comfortable playing experience.
Each and every fret on the fingerboard is easily accessible, and the bass in general is versatile enough to cover pretty much any playstyle.
That Legendary 4003 Sound
The basic tone of the 4003 is extremely well-balanced, providing you with a solid midrange with a touch of high-to-mid honk, and a nice, fast attack. This sound is easily tamed with the use of either of the two tone controls though.
With the bridge pickup you have the louder of the two, with a throaty, almost-but-not-quite harsh bark that can easily be softened through use of the tone control. In contrast to this, neck pickup focuses on plenty of warmth and fundamentals, producing a pleasing array of woody tones.
In addition to this, the Rickenbacker 4003 comes equipped with dual outputs, which allows you to divide your pickup signals and send them to separate amplifiers.
A favoured use of these outputs would be to send the neck pickup to a standard bass amp, whilst the bridge pickup is played through a guitar amplifier (often with fuzz/distortion effects).
As mentioned above, this excellent bass guitar is available in very limited number only, but don't worry: we've managed to get our hands on some!
If you'd like to purchase this bass, then be sure to place your order sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.
