Product Description

The Ricky 4003 Bass is one of the all time classic bass guitar designs. It's instantly recognisable by both its shape and its sound, and that's why so many bass players use them.

The Rickenbacker factory is based in LA and in recent years all LA based manufacturers have had some pretty stringent regulations imposed upon them regarding factory emmissions as the LA state governors try to reduce the smog above the city.

Rather than move or change the classic way in which Rickenbackers are made, the Rickenbacker company have just decided to make less guitars! This has caused Rickenbackers to become increasingly difficult to get hold of, with guitars taking over a year to arrive once the order is placed.

Here's what Rickenbacker say about the 4003 bass

The Classic Rickenbacker bass - famous for its ringing sustain, treble punch and solid underlying bass. A subtle strip of binding graces the elegantly curved body and the Rosewood fingerboard. Deluxe triangular inlays and stereo capability are standard features.

Mr Andrew Forder27th Sep 2023

I've wanted one of these for a long time and so far it does not disappoint. It looks great and the Walnut finish is fantastic. It's lighter than i was expecting, which is a bonus for me and of course has that classic Rickenbacker sound. It's pricey, but worth every penny.
