Rickenbacker have returned with the 4003 Bass Guitar in a Walnut finish which gives this classic model a strengthened feel and truly natural appearance. The 4000 series of bass guitars were the first released basses by this astounding brand around the late 50s. The Rickenbacker bass guitar has been a prime choice for many famous musicians over the years, from Lemmy of Motorhead to Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. The 4003 Walnut bass guitar has all the vintage character of a true Rickenbacker and covers a wide tonal spectrum.
The Rickenbacker 4003 has an entirely walnut body which gives the instrument a solid and robust feel but also offers an intricately natural appearance that looks ever so slightly unique with each one that is made. The use of walnut in the construction of the body contributes to a bass guitar that produces a resounding sustain, punchy trebles and plenty of bass.
The maple neck feels even more firmly fitted as it runs through the centre of the actual body of the Rickenbacker 4003. This complements the walnut body beautifully as the lighter maple wood runs from the headstock down to the bridge. Maple also allows for the 4003 to have a dynamic response whatever genre you’re playing.
Aboard the neck is a silky 20-fret maple fingerboard with decorative triangular inlays to guide you along the frets with confidence.
PICKUPS AND HARDWARE
Rickenbacker have equipped the 4003 Walnut bass guitar with two single coil pickups which administer a bright, clear tone that gives the bass a whole unique presence of its own. The controls at the lower end of the pickguard allow you to shape your bass’ output using the bass and treble tone and volume dial pots to suit your playing style and sound.
Establishing a strong connection between the strings and the body is a RIC style bridge and tailpiece, while the stylish headstock is fitted with Schaller Deluxe tuning machine heads to uphold tuning integrity with precision.
The Rickenbacker 4003 is an exclusive and truly unique bass guitar which utilises a stunning cut of walnut wood to produce an absolutely excellent instrument in terms of sound and appearance.
