About Rickenbacker 4003
Music lovers find themselves drawn to many different aspects of the songs they love, one of which is often a driving bass line. Bass guitarists looking to play a quality instrument would do well to add the Rickenbacker 4003 to their collection. This classic solid-body Rickenbacker bass delivers ringing sustain, powerful treble, and creates a solid bass line from its elegantly curved body. The maple and neck are typical made from maple and the through-body neck features a rosewood fretboard. The Rickenbacker bass has two single-coil pickups, double truss rods, and Schaller Deluxe machine heads. No longer made, there are also some fretless versions of the Rickenbacker 4003, known as the 4003L. The finishes available include Fireglo, Jetglo, Midnight Blue, and Mapleglo and most come with its own hardshell case. There is also a vast inventory of parts available on eBay for players to maintain and upgrade their Rickenbacker bass, such as with Rickenbacker pickups. Fans of the bass include Chicago's Peter Cetera, Queen's John Deacon, Rush's Geddy Lee, Deep Purple's Roger Glover, and Paul McCartney of the Beatles and Wing's fame. As the brand says, every collection deserves a Rickenbacker.
