The Rickenbacker 4003S gives you all the tone and playability of the 4003 with the addition of smooth, comfortably rounded edges and the traditional look of dot fretboard inlays and no binding-a simplistic aesthetic that was favored by renowned bassists Paul McCartney and Chris Squire when they got their first 4001S models in '64. The updated 4003S features a distinctively carved maple body, a 33-1/4" maple neck, and a rosewood fingerboard to offer that world-famous Rickenbacker playability and comfort. What's more? The 4003S also comes equipped with Rickenbacker's improved dual truss rod system.

Fitted with a pair of single-coil pickups, the 4003S delivers all of the sustain, solid lows, and high-end punch that helped make Rickenbacker basses legendary. It sports a 3-way switch and a simple 4-knob control layout that consists of independent Volume and Tone controls for each pickup. To give your sound some vintage flavor, just pull up the Treble Tone control.

Finally, a set of premium Schaller Deluxe tuning machines and a RIC bridge round out the Rickenbacker 4003S.

Serial#: 2409709. New 2024 Model. This bass weighs 9 pounds, 11.1 ounces.
