    There are classic guitars everywhere but rarely does a Bass guitar generate such a loyal following as the Rickenbacker 4003. New for 2015 the 4003sw takes you back to the classic 60’s style models loved by early rock pioneers. The SW has a walnut body and maple neck for greater warmth and depth of tone. This 2 tone wood design looks clean and stylish with the walnut giving it a certain antique charm.

    With all the great bass sound rickie fans have come to expect the new models are truly amazing instruments. Get one while you can, they go fast.

    An original classic design

    This traditional Rickenbacker bass style with dot inlays and no binding was prized by Paul McCartney and Chris Squire when they received their first 4001S models back in 1964. Players cherish the traditional look and rounded edges that many claim make it more comfortable than the 4003. By taking the bass back to its roots Rickenbacker have made an instrument that’s great to play. When you buy a rickie bass you’re investing in a real piece of history, they are treasured parts of many bass players regular gigging rig with reliable sound quality night after night.

    Rickie Sound

    The updated 4003Sw version comes with the improved dual trussrod system and of course the famous solid bass tones, ringing sustain and treble punch Rickenbacker are known for. This design was once exclusive to the British distributor Rose Morris in the sixties. All instruments come with mono output, as well as standard Model 4003 single coil pickups, keywinds and pickguards.

    Join the Family

    Rickenbacker owners have setup websites, forums and chat groups across the internet. From discussing classic models to swapping tips on how to get the best tone out of your bass.
