What makes This A SCALED PRODUCTION Run...

In Absolutely Mint Condition.

Original style finished rosewood neck — Rosewood will soften the sound.

This is one of the reasons bass players prefer the option of a rosewood fretboard.

The rosewood takes a bright bass and mellows it out a bit.

Rickenbacker basses have a unique sound and feel, with much narrower necks than Fender bass guitars, and a wide range of sounds.

Ric. Round Wound Strings.

Professional setup.

The sound of an early-1960s Rickenbacker 4003S strung with round wounds.

With their punchy treble, solid bottom end, and sonorous, piano-like sustain,

Rickenbacker basses helped forge the sound of classic rock in the capable hands of progressive bassists such as Chris Squire and Paul McCartney.

It's an iconic sound, and there's only one way to get it.

Today's formidable Rickenbacker 4003S delivers those inimitable bass tones in a sleek instrument that's primed for a new millennium.

Hard to find, they're always backordered. It never gets old, the Rickenbacker Bass is definitely an iconic instrument, it has a unique tone heard of countless of albums and consistent level of craftsmanship throughout the years. The all Maple construction and neck through body are responsible for the instrument's famous bite and growl. The rosewood fingerboard adds the warmth and harmonic complexity, balancing out the bright high end with powerful, rich bass.

The 4003S comes with two single-coil pickups that deliver the classic Rick bass sound, 3-way selector with 2 tone (With Vintage Tone push/pull) and 2 volume controls. These come with the newer version of the Ric Tailpiece. The 4003S is pretty similar to the regular 4003, but having an unbound body and neck with dot inlays and a conventional single jack output instead of two outputs.

Everything is 100% original and stock. The instrument has been barely used and it's in mint condition, free of any blemishes at all. It's essentially an instrument in new condition that has been played for just a few hours at home.

The bass is currently set very comfortably to play. It comes with its original hard molded case and original unused polish cloth, tags, sticker.
