Model 4003S/5

Rickenbacker announced the return of the 4003S/5 bass at the 2018 Winter NAMM Show. The five-string bass, which has not been offered for over a decade, has been updated with a slightly wider string spacing, a Schaller 3D-5 bridge, and a new single coil pickup design.

The pickup was re-engineered with two blade magnets that angle further out towards the B-string to work at a wider magnetic field, which offers evenness across the strings. Rickenbacker builds the bass with a maple body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. Other features include a 33 1/4-inch scale, dot inlays, and Schaller deluxe tuners.

The Rickenbacker 4003S/5 will come in all standard colors (including the new matte black) as well as part of the W series. It will be shipping this spring with an MSRP of $2,499.

Players cherish its traditional look and rounded edges that many claim make it more comfortable than the 4003. The updated 4003S version comes with the improved dual trussrod system. Of course, the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch we’re known for make it a dream. It’s no wonder we’ve received a steady demand of requests to bring this back. Iconic curves of maple form the body with a traditional Rosewood fingerboard. Dot inlays and no binding make this stand out from the standard 4003.
