Just as the 4001 was introduced as an upgrade to the 4000, the Rickenbacker 4003 was introduced in 1980 as an upgrade to the 4001. After the 4001 was discontinued in 1986, the 4003 became Rickenbacker's main production bass. The two basses actually differ very little apart from a few minor cosmetic changes and a change in the trust rod system.  
In 2014, Rickenbacker introduced a Walnut version of the 4003 (along with several other models) using a Walnut body with Maple neck and fingerboard.
