The Classic, the venerable, the timeless Rickenbacker 4003 Electric Bass in Fireglo, is famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch, and solid underlying bass. The 4003 has found itself in the hands of so many legendary bass players, there's literally no point in mentioning them because any bass player who has been around for more than a couple of albums used a Ric 4003 at some point.
The body is made from solid maple. This bright-sounding, dense hardwood is exceptionally toneful and certainly helps give the 4003 its biting tone. Finished in Jet Glo, this almost mirror-black paint job is undeniably cool! A subtle strip of white binding graces the elegantly curved body and offers visual contrast and definition.
For decades, Rickenbacker has been at the forefront of instrument building, and in the world of the bass guitar, the Rickenbacker 4003 Bass Guitar is among the top-tier of iconic basses that helped shape recorded music. Innovative design allows for great sustain and sound, with enough tonal shaping to blend into just about any musical situation. On the Rickenbacker 4003 bass, they added a Vintage Tone Selector which activates a capacitor in the treble pickup circuit to emphasize the high end. Pressed in, you get the familiar 4003 sound, pull it out to add bite and crispness. A classic.
