    This is the best bass, in my opinion. The notes just fly off the neck. The palette of tones you get with the pick ups is an endless delight. Oh and that Rickenbacker growl is to die for. Just supreme, none better. Rics Rule.

    wanted this bass after having 4001 in the 80's and selling it........rickenbacker has a sound of its own, nice to get one again

  • Amazing tone

    Verified Purchase

    Looks amazing, easy to play, incredible tone, you can fiddle with the knobs to get a wide variety of jazz/rock/funk-slap sounds. It's not cheap, but it's an utter joy to play and I'd recommend it without reservations to anyone serious about bass.

    Best bass I've ever played! I'm in love with the 4003S! Looks stunning in jetglo, and with a set of vintage knobs and TI Jazz Flat strings, this thing is an absolute Rickenrocker! Without the binding, this bass has comfortable rounded edges, that give it a sleek and sexy look and feel. I thought…

    It exceeds the hype. Gorgeous finish, nice thick d shaped neck.. N the sound, my God the sound is like a jazz bass and a pbass mixed together with tons of sensitivity. Very dial-able.
