Rickenbacker 4003S 5 String Bass in Fireglo

Written by

Cian Hodge

Classic design meets modern demand in this brand new 5-string introduction to the legendary 4003 line-up. The Rickenbacker 4003S5 is an instantly recognisable bass possessing chimey classic sounds, which have helped shape rock music history. 


It's vintage appointments all round in the build department. The 4003S5 is made of a maple body, maple neck and gorgeous flat rosewood fretboard housing 20 frets. What is different to the original is the visual style of the pickups. Out goes the horseshoe and in come two far more ergonomic polygonal single coils.

As you'd expect from Rickenbacker, the 4003 build quality is at the top of the game. It has a beautifully smooth neck-through-body construction without a jagged edge in sight.


The two Rickenbacker single coil pickups sound exactly as you'd expect - dynamic, blossoming and openly chimey. With the added string, you're getting the same classic sounds in a lower register. Perfect for the experimental bassist.
